Day 19 of my mom and dad's Christmas memories for the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories made possible by Geneabloggers.
My mom was always in charge of the Christmas shopping. When I got older, I would usually go with her. This meant that I would pick out my presents and there would be no surprises for me Christmas morning. (Which was a good thing except my mom would always find some stupid present that I didn't want to give me as a surprise).
Now all of my shopping is done online. It was fun for a couple of times to go out with all the crowds, but it got old pretty fast. I like to get all my shopping done in advance to keep from the crowds and shipping delays.
