After Christmas was all but cancelled last year, many Brits will be getting into the festive spirit as early as possible this time round to make up for lost time.
And with shops already rolling out Christmas ranges and displays, one B&M customer was left in stitches by an ornament she found on sale at the store.
The endearing white reindeer is standing up with what appears to be a fox, owl, squirrel and rabbit cuddled up on its back, which retails for £10.
But when the shopper failed to find a tag on the cute reindeer, she flipped it over in search of the price and was stunned to instead find that absolutely no physical detail had been left out when sculpting the reindeer’s anatomy.

A picture of the ornament and its appendage was shared to a B&M Facebook group, alongside the promotional image used by the shop, which fails to show the unexpected detail.
But after the reindeer went viral on Facebook, B&M issued the perfect response, stating: “We don’t want to come across as cocky but we think we’ve got the best range of decorations on the high street this year!
“Our stag ornament has sold really well – we can’t help but think it’s because of his big personality.”
The Facebook post from the shopper racked up plenty of comments, as reported by Tyla, with one person responding to the image to say: “It’s always the finer details that sell a product.”
A second said: “Well, at least we know it’s definitely a stag!” and someone else added: “It’s not something I would normally buy, but now I’m compelled to.”
Previously, a mum discovered the animal toys she had bought for her son from supermarket chain Kmart were far more educational than she expected when the five-year-old began shouting about the lion’s ‘willy’ while the family were in a crowded area.
However, the mum called for the toys to be banned, stating: “I thought it was really inappropriate. In this day and age, it’s not acceptable to have things like that on children’s toys.
“I buy a lot of toys, and my house is full of toys. But I’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s so stupid and just plain weird.” You can read the full story here.
