The Fifth Tradition of Christmas

The Fifth of my favorite Christmas traditions is taking a shopping trip to Freeport with friends. This year I took my friends Amanda  and Ruthie. We had a lot of fun and good fellowship and got a bunch of good deals to boot!!
Amanda relaxing in a dog bed! : )
Look at the mess! Who did that...
....guilty as charged, Ruthie! 
Even though we are not tourists and are Maine natives, we still had to take a picture in front of the boot. The above picture is completely abnormal- you hardly ever see me talking on the phone at home, let alone in front of giant footwear! (Click on the photo to see Ruthie's expression)
That's more like it! : )
The pertiest fish in the tank!
We enjoyed a short-lived rest in the new hunting and fishing section- very cozy!
I love the ambiance of Freeport during the Christmas season- it's such a classy looking place and they have very whimsical and picturesque decorations!
Even the moose is festive!
Ruthie striking a "catty" pose!
Butterfly and the.... butterfly!
Where's your favorite shopping destination at Christmas time and why?

Sniffffff! I sadly have never been to Freeport at Christmas! Waaahhhhh! As to which is my favorite store this time of year decoration wise JCPenny but other than that I really do not have a preference except possible the various craft stores!

Ha ha! I really like the picture of Amanda in the fish tank. And the picture of Ruthie doing the cat pose is funny too!
