According to a survey by the Red Cross, a total of 54% of the Norwegian population plans to stay at home most of Easter.
While many Norwegians are rushing from the cities to the mountains for the holidays, most plan to stay at home, according to a survey conducted by Opinion for the Red Cross.
“We are still on standby in towns and villages and have crews in the lowlands who are ready to move out if needed,” Nils Vidar Hopland in the Red Cross Auxiliary Corps stated.
In addition to 54% staying home during the holidays, 13% of the population fears becoming lonelier at Easter. A total of 20% state that they feel greater loneliness during the holiday season than on weekdays.
“Holidays with many days away from normal everyday life can be demanding (for people). Fortunately, there is a lot we as individuals can do for each other.
“Knock on your neighbor’s door, call a grandmother who is sitting alone, or say hello to a friend you have not seen for a while,” Pernille Lemming of the Red Cross suggested.
