Christmas is traditionally a time when we meet up with our families to share gifts and overindulge on food and drink.
But new data shows it’s also increasingly becoming a time to go online and indulge in some retail therapy.
Stats from Experian Hitwise show that Christmas 2012 was the busiest ever for online retailers in the UK, with consumers making 84m visits to retail websites on Christmas Eve and 107m visits on Christmas Day.
This is an increase of 86% and 71% respectively compared to 2011.
Amazon came out on top in the battle of the retailers, leapfrogging eBay to become the most visited ecommerce site on Christmas Day with more than 12% of all visits.
