Consumer confidence in Germany rose again during the busy Christmas period, auguring well for Europe's top economy as it goes into 2014, a new poll found on Friday.
"Consumer sentiment is very good at the end of 2013," market research company GfK said in a statement.
"Economic expectations and willingness to spend are continuing to rise. Income expectations have slipped, but are still at very high levels."
Overall, GfK's headline household confidence index was forecast to rise to 7.6 points in January from 7.4 points in December.
