That's when you get a lot sales, everything goes down. so that's when I'm going to shop, Smart move don't you think? you save alot of money.

Yes ! What you are sayimg is true ! But the idea of shopping before Christmas is some thing different than going for a lot sales! We go for shopping before Christmas to have the best possible thing we like at an affordable rate! We have lot of variety to choose from. We need to purchase gifts before Christmas so that they can be given on the Occassion ! Christman shopping is with zeal nd enthusiasm filled up with the festival mood and merry making! It is a different kind of shopping where generally saving of money doesn't play much of role, as every one is in the mood of spending as Christman comes ones in the year ! We can't get the gifts for kids after Christmas as they desperately await for this occassion ! Thus we need to go for shopping before the Christmas if we want to purchase things for Christmas. If we want to save money and don't take the mood and festivity into consideration, then it would be a wise idea to go for shopping after the Christmas, as we can definitely get lots sale, which isvery very cheaper. But I think we have to compromise on the quality and the choice as we normally get to get all the left outs! Thus I think that is ones totally personal view or perception, and by weighing the cons and pros of the situation and the requirement, concrete decision can be made!

Wow ! Thats great you have grown up kids and a Co -operative husband to wait till the Christmas is over ! Then where is the problem ! Then I think your decision is absolutely fool proof and obviously wise one! Wish you all the best !

ewwww - not for me
I love to get good deals on items but I just can't drag myself out to those mad houses the day after thanksgiving or the day after Christmas. I did it once and well once was enough. Now my sister and some of my other family members do it and I say more power to them if thats what they want.

My mom went out and started next years Chistmas shopping, she does that every year. She always shops the day after Christmas. I am out of money, I couldn't go. No one wants to see a bunch of bargains that you can't buy, haha.
