Easier to read numbers rather than the clock hands. The smaller one can sometimes appear between numbers.

Pure laziness. If I can save a micro-second of work for my frazzled brain, I will!

If it is 3:50, for example, and the hour hand is too close to the 4, I may accidentally read it as 4:50. I have accidentally clocked out late or early, at work because of that. Digital is preferrable.

Quicker to read, especially if you need the exact minute.

It really does not matter to me. I prefer the one that has the correct time.

Analog clocks show you the entire sweep of the day in a single quick view - with your approximate current position in that sweep also indicated. So much more human!

I like the visual an analog clock provides.

I like them both. But the feeling and smell of paper.

It doesn't matter to me. However, I prefer an analog quartz watch powered by solar energy.

They fo up by Thanksgiving weekend and down by New Year's Day. We are tired of them by then, anyway.

If you don't put any holiday decorations up, you can "take them down" quickly.

January 21st the ornaments came off the tree, 22nd the lights came off, 23rd it went out the door. Haven't unplugged the porch lights yet -- they still come on for a few hours when it gets dark!
