"Single men always feel lonely and Christmas increases their loneliness," said an official at the Nozze marriage information centre which published the survey results.

It said that 34 percent of respondents have taken, or plan to take, action to meet a partner for Christmas, particularly at parties.

In Japan, which is mostly Buddhist, people usually celebrate Christmas by spending time with their sweethearts and exchanging gifts.
