Aloha Friday #111

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

Do you prefer to do your Christmas shopping at the malls or online? Why?

With 3 young girls, it’s so much easier to shop online. I can even have the companies wrap and send the gifts directly to the recipients. Makes my life so much easier!

    online…all the way… the stores are just too crowded and most people loose all the christmas spirit when they inside a mall. I love reading my blogs and finding new and usual things plus the thought of supporting a small business, boutique or “mommy blog” is a good thing.

    Ugh. I’m strictly an online shopper. I can’t deal with crowds and malls and stores and sifting through messed up displays. I’d rather search on computer at my leisure, in my jammies and with a cup of tea. Then I can go all over without leaving the comfort of my home and never have to fight with rude customers or cashiers!

    I shop online mainly because there isn’t really much out here in the way of shopping. That way, I can also track sales and make sure I get exactly what I want at a discount, or, at the very least, with free shipping. AND I can also finish all my shopping before Thanksgiving, that way. Oh, yes, I’m done Christmas shopping!

    I guess it just depends on the mood I’m in and my physical capabilities. Sometimes I’ll want to shop and my body won’t let me or sometimes I’ll be feeling good and I won’t want to shop at all.

    I can’t do crowds of rude pushy people and you really can’t beat online prices especially with coupons and the free shipping deals so I’m an online shopper!

    I shop online and at the old brick and mortar shops, but nowadays I prefer online. So fast and easy and no waiting in line. Plus, it’s fun to get the packages in the mail after I forget what I’ve ordered for people!

    I don’t celebrate christmas-but when it comes to shopping, the physical experience is much better than sitting behind a screen and clicking confirmations. I LOVE malls.

    Since the internet has easily improvised its ways to make online movie watching more
    convenient, their styles have been favored once again by movie viewers.

    It is a honest fact that your computer is a great
    place to watch free streaming movies.

    You can attract plenty of women without being a jerk.

    Getting dressed, running to a movie rental store,
    stopping by to pick up the pizza drinks, and then heading home for a family movie
    night is a thing of the past when you watch movies
    online. These three protocols are the most commonly offered at VPN services.
