Blog: Christmas comes but once a year…

Catherine Sleep | 12 December 2005

… thank goodness! I hear you cry. So how are you going about your Christmas shopping this year? If you’re anything like me, you’re doing at least some of it online, and probably more than last year as retailers gear up to the needs of those who prefer the civilised atmosphere of home to the pandemonium of the shopping mall.

Not that I’ve anything against endless queues of stressed Christmas shoppers, cheesy Yuletide anthems on a constant loop and crowded, overheated shop floors, obviously. There’s a place for that, but it’s an increasingly small one. Two out of five UK shoppers now do at least some of their Christmas buying online, thanks in part to Broadband.
