ALL the alcohol that was being saved for Christmas Day has been drunk, Britain has confirmed.
The nation faces a last minute ‘booze rush’ after millions of consumers stocked up on Christmas drinks in November in the absurd belief that they would still be there a month later.
Mary Fisher, from Hatfield, said: “We got a litre of vodka for the festive period and a nice bottle of malt whisky for when we have friends over on Christmas Eve.
“The whisky was particularly good.”
She added: “We’ve done at least another two or three Christmas shopping trips since then but now it’s time to do the real one.”
Alcohol consultant, Julian Cook, said: “The trick is to buy stuff that you don’t especially like.
“A bottle of Martini Rosso or an eight pack of Kestrel will always be waiting to greet you on Christmas morning.”
