If you could cancel Christmas, would you?MoneySaving Poll Results

It’s time for our annual ‘bah humbug’ poll. Christmas conjures a picture of family, fun and festive frivolity for some, and stress, debt and chores for others (see Martin's Ban Unnecessary Christmas Presents blog).

So if you had a CANCEL CHRISTMAS button that'd make the whole thing disappear (and just add days to your holiday entitlement), would you press it?
