Retailers Hope For Strong Christmas Season
Retailers Hope For Strong Christmas Season
BERLIN, GERMANY - DECEMBER 08: A skull-shaped bottle of vodka with the words 'A Beautiful Gift!' in German sits next to a bow tie and a book of New York recipes in the window of a department store on December 8, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. Germans spend an average of 400 euros on Christmas presents as well as food and drink associated with the holiday, which is less than that of other countries supported by European Union bailout measures funded heavily by Germany such as Greece, where an average of 50 euros more is spent on the holiday, according to a recent study by Deloitte of 18 countries surveyed. While debt-ridden European countries are expected to cut their spending this year, retailers are hoping for strong sales in the German market. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)
