It’s Christmas Eve, the last day to get those small bits and pieces that are left on the list even though there has been a pandemic this year, some things will never change.
Homelessness might be at an all-time high and the health system is just a tad overloaded, but that’s not stopping the public from spending almost €5bn this Christmas.
On average, Irish households will spend €2,800 during the month of December.
The Christmas period is key for most retailers, with many posting as much as 30% of their yearly trade in the space of a couple of weeks.
