Doncaster, England- Its the most wonderful time of the year, festive cheer, Christmas trees, fake snow and presents. One man, even though eager to get his gifts sorted way in advance, has resigned himself to the fact that he’ll inevitably do all of his Christmas shop just one day before Christmas, on December 24th.
John Stones from Northwest Doncaster said “I started to think about what I need in October and I wrote a list in November. But I’ve just sidelined them, its just inevitable I’ll end up doing it all on Christmas Eve.”
Under pressure from his girlfriend Maria, John is being constantly “nagged” to go out and go shopping, racking her brains as to why John leaves it until the lasr minute, a frustrated Maria said “He does this every year, I keep asking him what he’s going go get, he’s organised it all but he just isn’t doing anything about it. I started and finished all of my Christmas shopping and wrapping in July.”
When asked why he was going to leave it until the last possible minute, John said “I don’t know. I guess I’m just being a typical bloke, I have no sense of urgency, I actually tried to buy presents the other day but instead of buying gifts for others I bought myself a new Xbox game and controller , it’ll keep me occupied until the 24th I reckon. Then I’ll be up until the early hours of Christmas wrapping tonnes of presents, I just know it.”
