    I prefer to shop in stores, but I get it done early to avoid the crowds. That way I can go shopping in December to just enjoy the atmosphere.
    I know longer send presents out of the country. The only people I still buy for in Canada, is an older couple and my mother. I just go on line and havea huge poinsettia, or other holiday item delivered at the beginning of December.

    Jolly I agree with you. Any in-store shopping I do, I get done before Thanksgiving. Sometimes I will wait and buy stocking stuffers in-store, in December just so I can watch the crowds!

    Some of both, depending on what is desired by others. If I can get it locally (or at the Mall of America), I will. There are some things that need to be ordered online, but I see some of the results in many of our old favorite stores closing down as a result of this trend.
    What we don't need, especially at Christmas time, is people out of work...
    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"
