One in three families with children in UK will have difficulty affording Christmas celebrations. This is what emerges from the survey conducted by YouGov, and reported by the television broadcaster "Sky News", according to which 2 percent of those interviewed - the equivalent of approximately one million people - declared that they will not celebrate Christmas at all due to the high costs.

The survey also found that overall about one in four people fear they will struggle to afford extra expenses this holiday season. These results come after two years of pressure on the cost of living for British families, with prices remaining high despite the recent slowdown in the rate of inflation. The Consortium of British Retailers (BRC) has issued a fresh warning that the pace of price rises in shops could even start to pick up in 2024.
