Now the fun can begin. Less than twenty shopping days until Christmas. Why is it that many of us wait until the very last minute to do our holiday shopping?
Only once could you find me shopping exactly three days before Christmas. On that day I made a promise to myself, I would never let the shopping days slip away again!
You do not want to find yourself looking for that perfect gift for your loved one on the day before Christmas. Why? Because you might not find anything. That’s why my brother-in-law always winds up with more than one sweatshirt. When people wait, they can’t find him anything.
Other than the food court, I can’t picture why people enjoy shopping the week before Christmas. The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally known for being the biggest shopping day in retail. If we understand this, then why would someone want to fight the crowds two days before Christmas?
The last thing I want to do is spend four or five hours of my time meandering all over the mall, getting pushed and shoved around by a mob of shoppers.
No, I do not cop out of the experience by giving a gift certificate. Although that idea, for some people is better appreciated.
I do the biggest majority of Christmas shopping in July. It’s a trade-off, I shop with no hassles. I leave the shopping on December 23rd to those who want to fight the crowd.
