The Christmas season is the busiest time of year for retailers. The amount that parents spend on their children for Christmas has increased five-fold between 1970 and 2018. These are some of the top selling Christmas presents throughout the ages...

In 1970 the most popular Christmas presents were the Nerfball and Sindy doll. In the following years top gifts included the skateboard, walkie-talkies and Twister.

Ten years later we saw the introduction of the very first Rubik’s cube, which filled up Santa’s sack on the demand of many children. Throughout the decade popular presents also included the BMX bike, My Little Pony and Polly Pocket.

Into the 90s, Nintendo brought out its first Game Boy, a product of high demand at Christmas. However, some of the old favourites such as Cabbage Patch kids, Barbies and the board game Mouse Trap were still very popular in this decade.

Throughout the early noughties, the ever-developing iPod touch, the Xbox and the Nintendo Wii gained popularity alongside the Playstation 3 in 2007.

By 2010, the first iPad was released and since the creation of the first Iphone in 2007, 2018’s most popular Christmas present is set to be the new iPhone XR.

The Philippines holds a Giant Lantern Festival on the Saturday before Christmas in the city of San Fernando. Eleven villages compete to build the most elaborate lantern.

Meanwhile, for the Norwegians Christmas brings the threat of witches and evil spirits. It has therefore necessary to hide your brooms on the night of Christmas Eve to prevent witches from riding on them.

A slightly brighter tradition is the Cavalcade of lights in Toronto. 300,000 LED lights are illuminated in the main square and stay alight from dusk until 11pm up until New Year.

For a swift start, the Venezuelan congregations head to Church early on Christmas Eve and do so on roller blades. Roads across the cities are closed to traffic so Rollerbladers can arrive to the service safely.

The MP for Twickenham joins a long list of political figures to pay tribute to Lord Ashdown

The leader of the Liberal Democrats has spoken of his respect and affection for Lord Paddy Ashdown - who has died at the age of 77.

The MP for Twickenham Sir Vince Cable has joined many political figures in praising the former Lib Dem leader.

The peer, who led the party for 11 years from 1988, passed away last night following a short illness.

The Prime Minister says he "served his country with distinction".
