I love Christmas shopping! I try to buy throughout the year, to make it easier on us financially. But I really do enjoy the atmosphere of the stores during the Christmas season. I love finding those perfect gifts for my family and friends.
I do love shopping, but I shop year-round because I LOVE a good deal! But there is nothing like the hustle and bustle, listening to the Christmas music and strolling with a cup of coffee (especially when my shopping is DONE and I can just enjoy the sights and sounds!!)
Totally agree here judesmama...when it's all done, it's kind of fun to chill with a warm drink and watch people hustling and bustling! I always wonder what's in all their shopping bags and who is going to receive it...it's all about the smiles the presents bring and the love being shared.

I personally love Christmas shopping. My wife and I start at the first of the year and are generally done by thanksgiving but, we always save stocking stuffers and small gifts so we can enjoy the decorated stores and Christmas music. The closer it gets to the day the more I enjoy it. I will admit that it's not quite as much fun since are boys are basically grown. I miss having to be sneaky when were shopping and getting the gifts in the house. But, I still love it!
