Fighting for the latest must haves, weaving your way down the high street and trying to carry countless bags of goodies all the way home; just a few festive shopping joys. Yes, that’s right, Christmas has come around already.
A time of turkey, tinsel and toys; Christmas is the most wonderful, and the busiest time of the year. Each year, preparation for the big day seems to come earlier, with some people even starting their shopping on Boxing Day.
Shops open late, allowing us to shop from 8am until midnight, yet most of us still seem to leave it until 4pm Christmas Eve… Large queues are inevitable, but special festive treats such as mince pies and mulled wine are always available to help with the distress.
Christmas Markets arrive, smelling and looking beautiful, offering treats from all four corners of the globe. Truth be told, we only end up spending money on ourselves, but its all part of the fun.
Although it can be mega stressful and bank draining, Christmas shopping is fun and the perfect way to count down to the 25th.
