A SURVEY PUBLISHED this morning says that Irish people will be the biggest spenders in Europe this Christmas.

Brown Thomas created a stir in August by setting up their Christmas store but others welcomed the development because it allowed them to get an early run at preparations.

With Hallowe’en now over and less than seven weeks until 25 December, retailers will go full throttle on their holiday advertising and shopping streets across the country will start to fill up.

So, today we’d like to know how far along in the process you are. Have you started your Christmas shopping?

Poll Results:

No (1882)
Yes, it's started (766)
Yes, and it's all done (98)
