Christmas Shopping - 8 December 2014 Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

Christmas Shopping - Don't panic! Every year in October I make plans that I will be done with my Christmas shopping before December starts. Well, no success with that yet.

I do order some gifts on-line, but I also enjoy walking in stores, listening to the Christmas music, sit down and have a coffee watching people run around.

A couple of years ago when shopping all the food for Christmas, the shop was really crowded and I think it took 30 - 45 minutes waiting in the line to pay and get out. So, the year after I had a day
off and I was at the store at 7am, got all my stuff and I had gift cards to pay with (Christmas gift from
my work). Now, the cards didn't have any eancode, but I think a line with 20 number that had to be typed in by hand by the cashier. And I think I had eight or ten of those.  So, there was a long line after me with people just dropping by before going to work buying some breakfast. I felt kind of bad, and there was only one cashier working, a young guy, new at work. Well, I got my stuff and now I try to be at the store really early to get the Christmas food.

During December 2014 I will blog inspired by the blog prompts of Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories at
