With energy prices soaring, few houses will be fully illuminated during the festive season. Don’t expect glowing reindeers on lawns or Santas on rooftops. Up and down the country, these holiday features will likely be absent this year.

But don’t think Christmas trees will be totally stripped of their fairy lights. Despite the dire predictions, Brits will try to make the most of the holidays, bringing some much needed comfort to the retail and hospitality industries.
