The season of good cheer and gift giving is a hard sell in Europe this year as the latest figures reveal: people simply cannot afford to dig deep into their pockets under the burden of austerity cuts and increased taxes.

And it is a painful reminder of ordinary Europeans who are paying for governments and banks' financial mismanagement.
