Holiday shopping expectations: you finish your list in mid-November, with creative and thoughtful gifts for everyone, avoid all the lines, and spend December drinking spiked eggnog and watching holiday movies.
Holiday shopping reality: it’s mid-December and you’ve barely started your list, the thought of sitting in holiday traffic makes you want to scream, you’ve missed all the good deals, and you’re considering gifting everyone a scarf and calling it a year (spiked eggnog still in the plan).
