  4. Grrrrrrr, now with two buns made of bacon. says:

    I don’t Christmas shop, so I’m either never finished or done really early (take your pick).

  5. MonkeyMonk says:

    Why finish on the 23rd when you have the 24th?

  6. Noremakk says:

    Why do today when you can put off ’till tomorrow?

    I think it was last year I did almost all my Xmas shopping on Christmas Eve. I’m doing better this year.

    amazon.com + bored at work in november = no shopping in december.

    Today is the last day for standard shipping at a lot of .coms, so I’m guessing a lot of the 24% are going to shop in B&M stores or they’re willing to pay out a liver for overnighting or 2-day.

    The only shopping I do that late is for candy canes and other little things. So, yes, I’m not “done” shopping, but its not like I have a lot left to go. Even my Dad got all of his main stuff earlier this season.

    Started and finished in roughly two hours…. today.

    I don’t shop until after xmas. That’s when the stores realize they didn’t sell enough and the prices really come down.

    I’m done, just gotta wrap stuff…and my wife will probably do most of that.
