Saving for Christmas: Does it really start now?

Posted on May 30, 2016 at 7:42 pm

I was chatting with a group of friends the other day and I was shocked to hear that a couple of them are already saving for Christmas 2016. I don’t know about you but I feel like we’ve only just come out of the last Christmas period, then again that was almost 6 months ago. It’s crazy to think we’re almost in June but surely saving for Christmas doesn’t need to start now? It’s scary to think that people spend so much money on Christmas they have to dedicate half a year to prepare for it, and I don’t think that’s what Christmas is about, it certainly isn’t in my family. What happened to homemade gifts and spending time with people? I know it’s highly commercialised but it’s getting ridiculous if people are genuinely saving for it already.
