I figured it out. It's not the Christmas SHOPPING I don't like.
"finding a parking place, getting back in a cold car"
that takes the joy out of the shopping.
So, I decided to hire a VALET to park for me.
He drives me up to the door of the store,
Waits in the warm car....sometimes up to 30 minutes at each store,
And pulls right up to the door when he sees me walk out!
It's how I've done all my shopping this year (other than what I've done on-line).
He's Cheap....And PATIENT!
Thanks Hubs. You are the Best VALET Parker EVER!
