T minus four days until Christmas. Do you have your shopping done? During the Bears/Packers game on Sunday (I don’t want to talk about it), I got all of my shopping done. Thank heaven for the Internet and free shipping! Though, as Josh Wilner pointed out last week, I could have been done before Thanksgiving if I were Jewish.
