Many people hit the shopping malls for some last-minute shopping on Christmas Eve.
Mandi Krach was among the shoppers who were up against the clock.
“I have to work on Christmas Day, so I’m just making sure my family has some gifts to wrap and open on Christmas,” Krach said.
Krach said the lines were long but the wait wasn’t too bad.
“The crowds are staying at home, I guess baking cookies and getting ready for their families,” she said.
James Liddick said he finished his shopping weeks ago but decided to take in the Christmas Eve rush.
“I think people forget that they have 11 months before Christmas,” Liddick said. “They wait to the last minute, and it is fun to be out and about and watch everyone because it’s the best time of the year.”
