Earlier in the halls here at work today I joked and said "tomorrow it is six months until Christmas." I got the usual groans and other responses normally given to saying that at this time of year or really any time of year aside from the late fall leading up to Christmas.

I know my wife buys gifts when she sees something she thinks will go over well throughout the year for family and friends, me I’m more of a last minute kind of guy.

My question is, do you Christmas shop year round or just when it comes to “crunch time” meaning Black Friday through Christmas Eve?
