Shoppers Hit Stores at Last Minute

It's Christmas Eve. Today hundreds of people made that last desperate dash to Wal-Mart to wrap up their Christmas shopping.

"My boy had to have a bike, grandmother a DVD player," said shopper Kevin Baech. "I couldn't pass up the Spider-Man football," he added, laughing.

Some where out to pick up the last-minute, yet important, ingredient to will make Christmas dinner delectable. Patricia Bradley said she was buying "a little bit of everything from chips and dips to air freshener."

Whether it was clothes, food, or CDs and DVDs, every department was full today.

But Christmas isn't all about shopping. It's about trying to make this family holiday as perfect as possible, no matter how long it might take. As Patricia Bradley put it, "I'm shopping last minute as usual."
