We did a bit of research into how much people plan to spend this Christmas, and our results threw up a few surprises.
But one in particular got us talking
So I thought, why not put it out there and see what our community make of it?
We found Xmas hosts are going to spend an average of £427 on everything from food and drink to entertainment…
But 43% of guests plan to pay nothing towards Christmas and leave it all to their hosts.
2020 has been a tough year for many people’s finances, which is why this
has turned into such a hot topic
So, what’s the best way to avoid awkward silences round the dinner table?
Let us know
- Guests should definitely pitch in financially.
- Guests don’t have to pay - they should just offer to bring something.
- Hosts invite their guests to dinner out of generosity - they aren’t expected to pay / bring anything and shouldn’t have to.
- Hosts should discuss it with their guests first and ask them to either chip in or bring something.
