Seasons Tweetings

Fill your stockings with our festive facts and seasonal stats!

We've pulled data from thousands of tweets for a fun look at what the nation really thinks about Christmas.

Countdown to Christmas

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas – here’s how many days, hours, minutes and seconds you’ve got left to get everyone’s presents, optimistically pledge to only have ‘a few’ at the annual work Xmas do’, fall out with everyone in your family, make up with everyone in your family and lose the will to live in the midst of a wrapping paper meltdown.

Days Hours Mins Secs

Snow-O-Meter

Usually there’s snow-chance (sorry!) of us getting a sprinkling of the white stuff on the 25th of December, but that hasn't stopped 80 of you dreaming of a #WhiteChristmas!

Under the Mistletoe

Not only is Christmas a time for giving, it's a time for love (and cheeky snogs under the mistletoe).

We’ve spared you the pet names (cuddleywudleysmoochykins made us feel sicker than that time we downed a whole bottle of egg-nog) and sifted through all the emosh declarations of lurrrrve to find out who will be locking lips come December 25th.

Can we put our tree up yet?

The greatest debate of the festive period - is your tree up months before Christmas? Or do you wait until there are just a few days left to go to deck the halls with boughs of more tinsel than you can shake a stick at?

Christmas or Xmas?

Vogue's Book of Etiquette states that "'Xmas should never be used" in greeting cards. #BahHumbug to that - this is Twitter and we’ve only got 140 characters to get our message across! Is it Xmas or Christmas, Tweeties?
