Hi Mama2Taj and Holly,
Here's an idea since costs are noticably high in all of these shoping malls. When on a stroll through the mall, wear a CD player and bring your favorite Christmas music with you. I notice that mall stores use a type of an almost hysterical "inspired shopping music" which tends to be hipster, excitable, and not very holiday oriented. And it is always store music meant for someone twenty five years younger than me. It kind of gives me a shoppers headache listening to it and I want to leave a store rather than keep listening to the high tense radio junk. It makes me sick. Maybe some soothing, easy listening Christmas music of your favorite liking on the CD headset might take thoughts away from what is on the shelves. Try it!!!
