towards the stores for last-minute gifts.
Dec. 22: Friday before Christmas
People are out of online delivery options now and will be going to the stores to pick
the items left in their shopping list. The Friday before Christmas is the last shopping
day for people who don’t to visit crowded stores on the Saturday before Christmas or
on Sunday, the Christmas Eve.
Dec. 23: Super Saturday
The last Saturday before Christmas is called Super Saturday and is the biggest day for
last-minute holiday shoppers. It is the busiest day for in-store shopping and many
