Er erklärte: “ich, as someone who wasn’t brought up with Father Christmas because we’re Jewish, I always slightly struggle with this concept.

There’s this message you get presents if you’re good, and Johnny down the street whose parents are a lot richer, has obviously been a lot good-er than you’ve been, because they get many more presents and many more things.

I know lots of parents who talk to their kids about it and they manage and change their messages, ‘Father Christmas only buys one present and they buy the big present,’ and it doesn’t seem to have warped us as a society.

But if you were to set it up as a concept that you were going to do it today and take the tradition away, it’s a bloody awful concept!

That some stranger is buying your kids presents and judging whether they’re good or bad and the richer children tend to get bigger and better presents. Bad.

However families are worried about paying for Christmas presents this year with the rise of energy bills.

Louise, ein 48 year-old from Higham Ferrers, Northants clocks up more than 50 hours a week just to stay afloat.

Louise says she has completely stopped cooking Sunday roasts and cakeswhich she has a passion forbecause of the spiralling costs.

“It’s ok now while the weather is good, but we can’t live on salads through the coldest months.

“I’ve already had to tell the kids: ‘there’s no Christmas this yearyou’ll get one small present each’.”

“It’s scary going into the winter and wondering if we are going to start the new year in a load of debt.

“I’d quite happily turn the telly off and play board games, but we’ve got to be able to turn the lights on and keep warm.”
