Christmas Fermi Estimation questions

December 17, 2018

Here are a few estimation questions I’ve thought of with a Christmas theme.

If every student at this establishment was able to decline their Christmas presents and donate the equivalent monetary value to charity, how much would that be?

How many brussel sprouts will be served (not necessarily eaten) on Christmas day in the UK?

How many metres of fairy lights are on Christmas trees right now?

How many pine needles on an average Christmas tree?

How many hours worth of films will be viewed by humans between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day (inclusive)?

How many mince pies would be needed to keep the UK going through the festive season?

I’ll happily take any more suggestions you may have!
