Cost and Value.

The first snow has fallen and bookmakers have shortened their odds for a white Christmas. So far, so seasonal - but distinctly unusual weather conditions earlier in the year have raised the price of a traditional Christmas dinner.It has been a Goldilocks year for British farmers, with the weather so wet at home that vegetable yields have been crippled, yet so dry in other parts of the world that imported animal feeds have jumped in price.
Now the effect is starting to be seen on British supermarket shelves. Many of the Christmas staples have shot up in price, and some may look different - for example, supermarkets are selling smaller sprouts.The latest official inflation figures reveal food prices are rising at 3.9%, faster than overall goods and services.
So will this year's Christmas meal gobble up your seasonal budget?
