Some families too poor to afford Christmas, says charity
Poorer families could end up cancelling Christmas because they cannot afford it.
The Family Action charity has released a report which claims that families on low incomes expect to spend at least two-thirds less than the national average on Christmas.
Some of the least well-off have also told the charity that they will spend less than £100 on Christmas food and gifts.
