Sandeen Rowe, 22, home health aide, Queens
I see myself spending more because I got a raise in my job.
Amy C., 16, student, New Jersey
I would say more because I feel like there is a lot more people I know wanting more this year.
George King, 56, insurance agent, Long Island

Ximena P., 17, student, New Jersey
I will be spending less this year because I am not working right now.
Peter Hubl, 54, banker, visiting New York from Germany
