You might want to be sitting down when you read the following sentence.
Christmas is less than three weeks away.
Now, go ahead and allow yourself to freak out for a second…OK, OK, now pull yourself together. You cool? OK Good.
It’s true, though, so if you don’t want to be like me, frantically scrambling from store to store trying to finish your Christmas shopping in the waining hours before the big day, you’d better get on it.
