Do you love or hate Christmas shopping crowds?

I happen to love them. The busier the mall, the better. I think it reminds me of my child hood when my dad would take me Christmas shopping and we'd go when it was really crowded but we'd have a great time anyways.
Crowds add to my excitement of the season.

  • I like the Christmas crowds if I am not in a hurry. As long as time permits for someone to stand in front of me and gab with an old friend I don't mind.

  • I hate them, this is why I have done most of my shopping on line or very early in the morning.

  • I don't mind the mall crowds,but I HATE the grocery store crowds. It seems like the stores are full of people who have never been inside a grocery story in their lives. I just want to tell them to order take out and get out of the way. No, I don't have a lot of patience this time of year. LOL

  • Absolutely HATE the Christmas crowds!! Seems the Christmas spirit gets lost within them. I prefer to do my shopping throughout the year to avoid the crowds. Note that I said "prefer". It doesn't necessarily happen that way. LOL.

  • I don't mind mall crowds. Walmart crowds annoy me--people that hog aisles with their buggies while refusing to move out of the way of others. I try to be patient, but it drives me nuts!

  • Hate it. It seems to bring out the most rudest people.
