100 Days Until Christmas
The 16th September heralds just 100 days until Christmas and William Hill have well and truly kicked off their Christmas betting specials. It is just 3/1 that we see a White Christmas north of the border in Aberdeen, Glasgow or Edinburgh, while it is 8/1 for snow to fall on Christmas Day in London.
“We have already had talks of Indian summers and El Ninos in the last few weeks and now it looks like we could be set for a White Christmas as well,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
In the annual race for the Christmas number one single, it is the X Factor that has a narrow lead over the field at 4/6 but Cilla Black at 3/1 and Sam Smith 6/1 look likely contenders.
“The X Factor may well have plummeting viewing figures but it looks like it already has Christmas number one sewn up,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
