Alan Jones

TWO out of five mothers spend more than 40 hours planning and preparing for Christmas - compared with just five by their male partner, according to new research.

Around one in seven did not feel appreciated for all the work they put in over the festive period, a study of 1,000 women found.

One in five of those questioned by chocolate brand Galaxy complained that their partners were no good at choosing Christmas presents.

A quarter of the mothers surveyed said they started preparing for Christmas in September, while one in eight admitted they bought some presents in January.
