The Daily Poll

Poll: Are you doing your Christmas shopping online or in person?

Of course, Christmas is about more than just shopping and presents – nudge nudge, wink wink.

‘TIS THE EIGHTH of December, the day when it was tradition for people from down the country to come up to Dublin for a day of festive shopping.

Back decades ago years ago when that tradition was in full swing in Ireland there wasn’t an option to shop online – but after the Covid-19 pandemic forcing a lot of us to do our gift shopping online, some of us may ditch tradition in favour of convenience and avoiding crowds.

So we’re wondering: Are you doing the bulk of your Christmas shopping online, or in-person this year?

Poll Results:

Mostly online (5057)
Mostly in person (4008)
Mostly not buying anyone presents (1253)
