"What part of Christmas do you find most stressful," I asked my secretary the other day.
"The shopping," she said, without hesitating.
"The shopping," those two words just about cover it all.
The traffic - trying to find a parking place, struggling to drive from one store to the next, and the crowds, rushing to get in line, scurrying by other shoppers in the mall - all come with the shopping. It's an all-inclusive non-bargain.
