TWO thirds of Britons are planning to spend more or the same on Christmas as last year, according to the HSBC Christmas Survey. On average, Brits are planning to spend £378 on the holiday, with £183 of that going on food, drink and entertainment. In a positive sign for retailers, the 22 per cent who plan to spend less say they will cut their spending by £96.53, while the 20 per cent who are planning to spend more say they will shell out an extra £82.23 – almost cancelling out the implied drop.
