When Do You Start Christmas Shopping? [POLL]
Halloween is still a couple weeks away, and Thanksgiving a month, but if you go into many retail stores right now you could swear Christmas is right around the corner. Some complain about Christmas “starting” so early, and others love it. So when do you start your Christmas shopping?
According to PriceGrabber’s winter holiday shopping survey consumers plan on post-Thanksgiving shopping; 33% said they believe the best deals would be available after Thanksgiving (up from 29% in 2011). Some 28% plan to shop on Black Friday, 23% will shop in December and 16% are targeting Cyber Monday.
Whether it is for the best deals, just to get it done and out of the way, or because you enjoy it, it seems Christmas shopping starts earlier and earlier every year. It might not be long before we see an actual Christmas in July!
