An Italian business association says its survey indicates more than eight in 10 Italians will stay home on New Year's Eve for financial or other reasons.

Confeserecenti said Friday the economic crisis is leading more Italians to spend the holiday at home and survey respondents said they plan to spend about 3 percent less than they did during last year's holiday, ANSA reported Friday.

The association said going to a restaurant is a more popular choice this year among those venturing out to celebrate. About 6 percent of respondents said they planned to go out for dinner on New Year's Eve, up from 2 percent last year.

No survey methodology or margin of error were provided.

Meanwhile, the Italian Farmers Confederation said about 90 million bottles of spumante, sweet Italian sparkling wine, are expected to be consumed in the country during the holiday, about the same as last year.
