Picture the scene: you’re sitting at the dining table on Christmas Day and you’re faced with a tough decision. Turkey, or technology?

According to a survey by What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, 49% of UK adults would ditch the Christmas poultry in favour of TV, mobiles and surfing the net.

Not everyone is lacking in Christmas spirit though, as 27% of those surveyed couldn’t live without a juicy turkey and 23% admitted that they couldn’t have a Christmas without presents.

Andy Clough, brand editor at What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, said: “The fact that many would be willing to trade the traditional turkey and even presents for tech once again indicates that we are a nation of technology addicts.”
