Sixty-five percent of the freshmen students of INNHS do not believe that Christmas 2011 will be as happy as Christmas 2010.

This is the result of the survey conducted by the second-year staff of The Weaver with Mark Mark Vincent P. dela Cruz as team leader, among 800 student-respondents at the Vocational Compound, DOST Compound and Main Campus, Nov. 19.

About 25 percent still look forward to a bright Christmas while 10 percent are undecided.

The respondents cited economic crisis, incomplete family members and series of oil price hikes as reasons why they felt this way.

“My allowance has been reduced this school year,” said Mahanah Lei J. Cabanilla of I-SPA Bernal.
