And it won’t be just to watch feel-good family movies!
The study of 2,000 adults who celebrate Christmas found they will spend 49 minutes a day during the week’s holiday ‘mindlessly scrolling’ through their phones.
And another 34 minutes each day – that’s just under four hours over the week!
On top of this, adults will enjoy 116 minutes a day watching TV and an average of 95 minutes in front of films, with Home Alone, Elf, Love Actually, and The Snowman on the must-watch list.
Playing video games, additional use of tablets, and texting tot up another 135 minutes.
It also emerged that in the week between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, 37 percent are looking forward to nothing more than lying in front of the TV ‘double screening’.
On average, adults will look at their phone 10 times every waking hour over Christmas – once every six minutes.
