Is it time to ban Christmas presents? Our very own Scrooge, Martin Lewis believes festive gift-giving has lost its point and kills the anticipation of what should be a joyous time.
He says: "Across the country people are growling at the enforced obligation to waste money on tat they can't afford, for people who won't use it. Festive gift-giving has lost its point, risks doing more harm than good, mis-teaches our children about values and kills the joy of anticipation of what should be a joyous time.
"Before you think this is just bah-humbug, this rant isn't about presents under the spruce from parents or grandparents to children or spouses. It's about the ever-growing creep of gifts to extended family, colleagues, children's teachers and more."
Now he joins us with his top tips to break the Christmas gift-giving habit. Bah Humbug!
