Shopping, stress and Christmas specials

Time is slipping away quickly, the selection is becoming slim and every time a free day arises for some shopping time, another 2 feet of snow falls, making a trip to the mall a potentially deadly and decidedly non-jolly sleigh ride down the Thruway. I have probably complained about Christmas shopping every single year that I have been writing this column but honestly, is there any aspect about the holidays that is more stressful? What do you buy for the dog that has everything? Will I be able to find my mother a sweater that she won't feel inclined to return this year? Do I really have to pay $27 in shipping in order to receive this gift by Christmas? Will I ever learn that this is a task best tackled before Thanksgiving?
