I know that nearly everyone you talk to hates going to the mall during the holidays but to me it almost seems a necessity, not only does it feel festive bit let's be honest if you're going to spend your money on gifts it's all there!

Sure it's a hassle to park and there will be plenty of kids to contend with but honestly it's no worse than your average box store!

I personally think people are friendly at the mall during the holiday season, it's decorated, there's plenty of room to get out of each others way, Santa is there and you can get amazing snacks!

So what's not to love?  And who doesn't love a gift that was purchased at the mall?  They will at least know they aren't getting crap!

So I say let's all shop at the mall this holiday season, I promise it will make you feel better!
