Now, Americans are fretting about the chilly climate here. Some have even turned down the deals on turkey and Christmas vegetables, as they want their December buyings to be a little more local. Brits are already complaining about a lack of outside November menus as they prefer to avoid chilly November temperatures. But they cannot wait until the mid-December rush when they’ll turn out for their turkey dinners.

People are about to switch to a range of frozen foods and decorations, with refrigerated canned fruit and vegetables proving popular this year. Almost one in five of us Britons say they will shop for chilled versions of turkey at the market, according to a survey by Amazon UK. Many are also planning to look for winter themed Christmas decorations this year.

It reveals that many Brits are fearful of freezing their vegetables. In fact, almost one in five have made an excuse to freeze their frozen food now in order to have this a year later, the poll of 1,000 British people found. One in 12, of whom were over the age of 55, will freeze their vegetables in an effort to make the wintery days pass sooner.

And 68 per cent say they will look for seasonal decorations for their houses this year. However, the biggest change in the poll occurred when it came to how Brits would fill their car with food. Nearly three quarters (71 per cent) say they would buy frozen turkey next year, as they currently cannot afford a December turkey. Of those willing to skip the 8am supermarket opening time to enjoy a cooked turkey, more than one in ten (18 per cent) chose to eat that day. Similarly, the most popular option to have a cooked turkey at home was to take it to a nearby farmer, at more than 11 per cent.
