Christmas is magical, but kind to our wallets (or the environment) it certainly is not. First up, there's the one hundred and one Christmas gifts you've got to buy your immediate family, AND your partner, AND the in-laws -- it certainly doesn't help they're all notoriously fussy either.
Then, you've all the obligatory work drinks, friends drinks, work dinners, friends dinners, Christmas themed nights -- the works. Oh, and as if that weren't enough, this is all followed by the grand old New Year's Eve party, with all its champagne, glitz and glam. All these events absolutely require brand spanking new outfits, of course. And let's not forget the money you'll dish out on the latest trendy detox in a vain attempt to restore your liver's normal(ish) functions
Phew -- that was seriously painful and expensive to think about.
