Journal entry 221--Christmas shopping

Describe one of your most harried Christmas shopping experiences.

Every year growing up Christmas shopping was a crazy time. Most of my mom's shopping was done on Christmas eve! It just seemed like a normal part of the season. Because we waited until Christmas eve to complete our shopping, the stores were busy with long lines and grumpy people. Sometimes we even bought a Christmas present on Christmas day! It wasn't until I married my husband and realized that Christmas shopping is best done early in the season. My mother-in-law starts buying presents the day after Christmas for the following Christmas! That's a little too early for me.
