Christmas Parades Planned Throughout East Texas

At some stores and homes, the Christmas decorations were up before Thanksgiving.

A new Nielsen survey says most kids age 6-12 want an iPad most of all this Christmas. Most adults would probably rather have that than a new sweater too.

The new Nintendo Wii U comes in second on most wish lists, and then the iPod Touch and iPad Mini.

Are you planning to shop in the store, or online this weekend? Actually going to Broadway Square Mall, grabbing the item you want, and paying for it there without having to wait for UPS to bring it to you seems sort of nostalgic now. Die hard shoppers might argue it's the most fun way to obtain new things, but there is something quick and convenient about electronically adding to cart.
