As the nation approaches the final countdown to Christmas, new research rings alarm bells over the financial impact of Christmas in credit crunch Britain. The research from the money saving website Savebuckets.com reveals that as Brits prepare for Christmas, many are still paying off last year’s festive spending. With 41 per cent of Britons paying for Christmas on credit last year, almost one in five are still paying for last year’s festivities, fewer than one in three having cleared their Christmas debts when their January credit card bill arrived.
