Here in NYC, Macy's is now open 24 hours a day until Christmas eve at 6pm! My friends, Mike and Jon, joined me in some after midnight shopping for a couple of hours. It's great! Hardly anyone is there and it's just the most relaxed shopping ever. Sure, I bought mostly stuff for myself. Okay, I bought EVERYTHING for myself. Whatever!
We had a blast walking around and checking the normally boisterous and rustling floors. And the McDonald's on the 7th floor was party central! 98% was filled with Macy's employees but boy was it packed. It was the busiest place in the entire store!
We then went to find Santa but ended up on the 9th floor where the Christmas ornaments and other stuff was located. We went back down one flight to find where Santa is during the day but it was closed off. Tempting to show up at 7am to see how early the line starts forming. I want a picture with Santa! Been too long. I did manage to send my letter off to Santa so hopefully he'll get it in time.
If you're looking for some no-frills and less crowded shopping, then hit Macy's tonight or tomorrow late in the wee hours. Lots of great deals going on as well! Oh, and if you do, pick this Sumo wrestlers toy up for me. Thanks!
Happy Christmas to all and happy shopping!
