Christmas Sales on the Up
People in the north of Sweden are more generous at Christmas time than southern Swedes according to a study by Swedish bank, Nordea.
Swedes will spend over 6 billion US dollars on presents this year with women and people on low income buying the most. The average Swede will spend around 860 dollars on their loved ones, up 8 percent on last year.
We’ll have more on what they’ll be spending their money on later in the programme.
