HomeBlogsTen years on: the changing face of Christmas consumption

Over the last decade online retail has become dwarfed by a succession of record-breaking statistics. By 2012, 115m visits to UK shopping websites were made on one day alone. That day was 3 December, dubbed Mega Monday or sometimes Cyber Monday. The first Monday of December has become the busiest pre-Christmas, web shopping day of the year.
