WE’D RATHER GO
Here at EWB, we learnt a few valuable lessons last weekend. The first – always take an umbrella with you when
going to see a fireworks display in northern England. Secondly, screaming at the television does not ensure the
demise of X-Factor’s John and Edward. And thirdly – never leave your home to go Christmas shopping.
The third lesson we’ve apparently learned much later than the rest of the UK, as according to a recent survey by
MORI, many Christmas shoppers would prefer a trip to the dentist rather than the stress of braving the shops for
presents. The survey showed that three out of 10 people find Christmas shopping in crowded streets more
stressful than looking after a young baby and it takes at least two days for six out of ten people in the UK to
complete their gift lists.Isn’t it a shame that not
