Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away, which means tons of folks are traveling across the country to visit their friends and family.

And for those who are not staying in a hotel, but a loved one’s home, how long should that stay last?

A new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Serta Simmons Bedding found that 49% of people believe the max number of days you should stay at someone else’s home is FOUR!

Per SWNS Digital, the survey also found:

1 - Hosting messes with your sleep.
The average host loses two-and-a-half hours of sleep a night in the days leading up to it.
2.  Guests don't sleep well either.
75% of us feel like we have to go to bed and wake up at the same time as the hosts, even if we're jetlagged.
3.  The best houseguests are Baby Boomers.
The poll found they're the most likely to be considerate and clean up after themselves.
4.  Young people don't feel weird about sleeping in the same bed, even under their parents' roof.
Most Gen Xers and Millennials still kinda do.  But 70% of Gen Zers don't feel awkward about it.
5 - 7% of people HIDE THEIR VALUABLES when they have guests!
Just want to make sure nothing gets stolen.
