Around Christmas last year I noticed that the number of visitors I was getting to Snail's Tails had gone down. After Christmas, the visitor counts recovered and have been slowly going up ever since. The graph from StatCounter confirms this trend with the red arrow marking the Christmas Dip in the numbers of visitors.
Why did the number of visitors go down during Christmas? I suspect this had something to do with the fact that most of my visitors come from the U.S. (Example stats here.) The only reason for the Christmas Dip I can think of is that during that time people must have been too busy with Christmas-related activities to read blogs. There was no comparable dip around Thanksgiving, however.
Did other bloggers experience a similar drop in visitors during Christmas?
