We'll be Europe's biggest spenders this Christmas - National News - Independent.ie
Down form €1,300 at the height of the boom in 2008.
Spending 500 on gifts is madness. I've a feeling a lot of these gifts given to adults will end up on ebay.
288 on food / drink and 178 going out isn't too bad - at least the economy is being helped as money will be spent locally.
This is what people plan to spend but their plans might change when the budget is revealed - and less money for the government.
