And by December 25 we’ll have already seen four seasonal movies, heard 35 festive songs and eaten 12 mince pies. The survey – for Gordon’s Ultra Low gin – revealed some started partying on November 1, and 58 per cent of us are thinking of ways to avoid more bashes. Psychologist Rachel Andrews said the pressure of “unrealistic” Christmas expectations can be “exhausting and unsustainable.”
