There are decorations and party clothes to buy, presents to purchase, and if you're traveling, you'll also have to pay for a plane ticket. Can you say "cha-ching"? All of those holiday "essentials" can tap out your bank account, but there is one way to make sure you're finding the best possible deals on flights. According to the travel search engine Skyscanner, you should book your Christmas and New Year's Eve flights this week.
