Listen: how to keep the family peace this Christmas

It’s the time of the year where we all come together in the spirit of celebration and togetherness – but it’s also the period of the year where we are most likely to fall out with our nearest and dearest.

It may not come as a surprise to many – but almost two thirds (63%) of people admit to experiencing family dramas around Christmas time. The main causes of festive fights are finding and buying Christmas presents (21%), deciding who hosts Christmas (15%) and deciding when to put up the tree (10%).

An added element that could increase tension among families this Christmas is the winter World Cup. 6 in 10 people (60%) say the tournament will cause arguments or squabbles about whether to watch football or other types of TV and films, while 44% say it will be family members watching TV instead of helping them to host or Christmas shop that causes animosity this festive period.

With gifts being a major contributor to Christmas drama, as new research from One4all Gift Cards revealed.
