Shopping Online Before Christmas

I keep hearing from time to time that it is better to wait for shopping until the Christmas season. Some of my friends say that you can grab better deals around the Christmas time. I cannot say that I agree with them. There are sometimes some things I need to buy immediately. Sometimes, I do not have the luxury to wait until Christmas to be able to buy it. Christmas is only once per year. I cannot wait one year to be able to buy all those things I want to be able to buy. Also, there are more people shopping around Christmas, which might make me wait for something longer than I would usually have to wait.
