    Yes indeed! I for one am definitely going to be doing my level best to have a good Christmas! On that front, I’m definitely going to be going into London over the next few months and meet more Watson’s Daily Ambassadors for an in-person drink 👍🍻

    You’ve made some very good points there, Zifei! Yes, I would have thought that all the BNPL will do very well over the Christmas/New Year period. It will be interesting to see how well delivery-related supply chains hold up because, as you say, delays and frustrations could well drive people back into the shops. I’ve never used Wish before! Is it any good?

    I know that this isn’t very “Christmassy”, but when you think about it Christmas is not very environmentally friendly! We use wrapping paper that is unrecyclable, crackers that have plastic toys in them, tinsel, glitter and then all the packaging on the gifts – not to mention the miles travelled by the presents themselves (and presumably there will be more of that by air freight because of the shipping shortages)! Having said that, I think that the overriding sentiment will be one of just being together with people that you weren’t able to be with last Christmas – and anything that will enhance that will be something many will be willing to suspend usual restraints for. It is something, however, that retailers especially could potentially get involved with and maybe enhance their green credentials by offering more environmentally-friendly products and services. I would expect debt levels to rise – and this may be more painful if the BoE decides to increase interest rates…

    What do you reckon you’d use instead though? I realise that young people aren’t massive fans/users of Facebook. I am one of these -> 🧓 so can’t see myself moving away from Facebook!

    I guess Nick Clegg has a lot to do as VP of global affairs!!! I just wonder how you would separate the bits of Facebook as they have become so intertwined over the years…if anything does actually happen I think it’ll be very messy
