Ok- I admit it. I am one of those crazy people who is still shopping for last minute gifts on December 24th at 2pm. Inevitably, it's because I forgot someone's gift, or I was informed about a last minute addition to the guest list. Sometimes it's because I realized that one of my children has more gifts to open than the others (I am absolutely meticulous about ensuring that each child has the exact same amount of things to open- call me crazy).
Every year I tell myself that I'm going to start shopping earlier so that I can be totally and completely finished before Black Friday. And every year I've hardly purchased a single gift by the time Thanksgiving rolls along.
Each year, however, I am fascinated by the numbers that come rolling in. America may be a melting pot of diversity, but one thing we have in common is that we spend money...lots of it.
