Post-Christmas sales dates

Christmas is a time for giving (spending money on others), receiving (others spending money on you), having all the family round (spending money on food) and having a good time (spending money on alcohol). If you haven't yet realised that the true meaning of Christmas is to spend lots and lots of money then you've obviously misunderstood the whole thing.

Indeed, spending is a tradition that can be traced back to the birth of Christ, when three Wise Men spent their entire Christmas bonuses on extravagant gifts from Selfridges for Baby Jesus. Of course nowadays the festival of spending continues well into the new year with the January Sales, many of which start on Boxing Day, allowing you to prepare for next Christmas by doing much of the spending in advance.

So that you can get on it straight away, we've compiled a list of start dates for the upcoming Post-Christmas sales, and a little about what you can expect from each retailer.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
