At last. Black Friday has gone. Cyber Monday passed off without any real horror.
But just when you thought all the bids to exploit rampant consumerism had gone for another year, along comes Panic Saturday.
That’s right, this weekend us Brits will splash out a staggering £1.2 billion on the high street.
That’s a total of £2.1 million every minute (that’s my wife accounted for anyway, not sure how much the rest of you are going to spend).
Alarming stuff in Friday’s Courier (unless you are a shopkeeper, in which case you well even now be whooping with ill-contained joyous anticipation).
In other festive news we have the full lowdown on the people you DON’T want appearing at the Christmas table.
Would it be too obvious to say mother-in-law tops the list?
No. No, it wouldn’t.
We find out more and also reveal the most sought after guests.
Do you Noah another thing?
Friday’s Courier has a list of top baby names.
We have full details, including a local breakdown.
But you Noah what? There’ll be no hints here.
Meanwhile, if you like news about perspiring (and who on earth doesn’t?), you’ll love our tale of the man whose trial was delayed because he is too sweaty.
We love Fridays (and every other day for that matter. Except Sunday. No Courier on a Sunday you see. Ghastly. Simply ghastly). Please ensure you enjoy your day to the full by snapping up a copy of The Courier. Failing that why not try our digital edition?
