A new survey in the U.K. found 3% of people have already started buying gifts for NEXT Christmas. It’s not clear if the results directly translate to the U.S. or not.
Another 2% said they’ll buy at least one 2019 gift in the week before Christmas. So that’s 5% total. Meaning that for a few days, 1 in 20 people will be over a YEAR ahead on their Christmas shopping.
According to the survey, the vast majority of us don’t start our Christmas shopping until somewhere between September 1st and December 24th.
