Here's Why People Are More Social in the Summer

Have you ever wanted to cancel plans because you were too engrossed in binging a show?

More than one in 10 Americans have, according to new research.

Three in five have backed out of an event due to bad weather and one in two have blamed an illness.

Still, some people have even zanier reasons to skip out on plans like double booking and just not feeling like going.

A study of 2,000 respondents examined Americans' social lives and how the seasons can affect them.

The survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of the Chinet brand revealed that 35 percent are more likely to avoid socializing in the winter months than in the summer ?

So it's no surprise that three in 10 only make it to one or two social events in the average winter month.

Thankfully, once things warm up, people's social calendars heat up too.

Results found the average American is 31 percent more social overall in the summer than they are in winter.

Half would even call the summer their busiest time of year for events and catch ups so as the weather warms, people's social calendars quickly heat up too.

Everyone is prepared to drop the cash in order to start crossing things off their summer bucket list.

Over two in five hopes to spend more time with family and friends or explore the great outdoors.

Others are planning on being more active, enjoy a grill out with friends, or take a road trip.

Still, the ultimate summer staple is an annual bash and almost half of Americans plan on throwing one.

These soirees aren't going to just throw themselves together.

The average summer get-together hosts 15 guests and takes 3 days of preparation.

And don't forget about cleaning up the aftermath ... the average party takes 2.35 hours to return a space to normal.

The Chinet brand spokesperson said: "Outdoor entertaining is a quintessential summer activity that people look forward to every year.

Warmer weather brings the opportunity to host more casual, low-maintenance get togethers.

It's easy to bite off more than you can chew when it comes to summer entertaining, so be easy on yourself and find ways to simplify the experience, like serving catered or store-bought food on disposable tableware.

You'll be able to focus on socializing and bringing your get together to life, making it more enjoyable for you and your guests." People have been hosting their annual summer get togethers for seven years on average and do it for a whole variety of reasons.

Family gatherings, birthday parties, barbecues, Fourth of July celebrations, and cookouts all made the top five.

Other notable party hits included: reunions, pool parties, patio cocktails, and dinner parties.

The Chinet brand spokesperson added: "Whether it's the annual backyard barbecue or impromptu patio cocktails with friends, the Chinet brand makes entertaining easy, no matter the occasion.

Using premium disposable tableware, makes serving and clean-up easy, so people hosting can spend more time with friends, family and guests." All the fun does tend to wear on the purse strings though, seeing as the average person spends $99.89 a week socializing ?

That's $5,194.28 a year.
