Eonline brings us another story of celebrity fans of a festive onesie. In an interview last week, Leonardo DiCaprio, who in his new film plays an 1820s frontiersman out for revenge after he’s left for dead when attacked by a bear, said conditions were tough on location in wintry Canada with not much to do between takes. “We would sit in our homes in the middle of snowy Calgary and we’d have a hot chocolate and lots of great food,” DiCaprio said. “In a onesie,” his co-star Tom Hardy added. “We got warm,” DiCaprio agreed. “That was our celebration. We got warm.” The film is “The Revenant” and is in limited theaters on Dec. 25 followed by a nationwide release two weeks later.
We also noticed that Grand Theft Auto is getting into the mood as you can see in the pic. above. In a post at its official site, Rockstar Games announced the Christmas themed update for the city of Los Santos. This year’s seasonal update will include new Santa outfits and a new collection of snug festive onesie pajamas, masks featuring amongst others Mr. and Mrs. Claus, Bad Elf, and Crazy Gingerbread, three Christmas style car horns, and Christmas trees at Legion Square.
If you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet don’t worry because more than 9 out of 10 Americans have resorted to last-minute holiday shopping, often because they were busy earlier in the month or couldn’t figure out what to get their friends or family, according to retail coupon site RetailMeNot. Six out of 10 of those shoppers questioned prefer to shop in store rather than online because of the risk of late, or even non delivery. If you wait until Christmas Eve to stock up on gifts, you’re probably too late for anything but physical shopping although in the future Amazon are threatening drone delivery up to the last minute.
And for those who just want to curl up in a festive onesie and surf the internet you are not alone. According to a recent survey for Walmart, 51 per cent of people are planning to wear their pajamas or festive onesie all Christmas day! Actual online sales on Christmas day are booming with Amazon predicting its best ever Christmas Day this year. Their forecasts predict that Printable and Email Gift Cards will still be ordered on Christmas morning. If this trend to buy later and later continues, some are even predicting that bricks-and-mortar retailers may start opening their doors on Christmas Day within three years. According to research from LoyaltyOne Consulting, which surveyed nearly 1,300 shoppers from across the country, overall, 18% of responders said that if stores opened after 6 p.m. on Christmas day, they would be there, ready to do some shopping. Even this year, some of the country’s biggest retailers are keeping their doors open late on Christmas Eve. While some of you might wince at the idea of shopping close to midnight on Christmas Eve, retailers know that there are some consumers (men basically) who will still need to stock up on last-minute presents. Walmart, the country’s biggest retailer, will keep its doors open until 8 p.m., while rival Target will welcome shoppers until 11 p.m. tonight, just in time to see Santa on his sleigh flying through the air on your way home.
