Christmas is almost here in Colorado ... Can you feel the pressure? You most likely are.

Most Coloradans just started their Christmas and holiday shopping, and the pressure is very real.

I was recently in Old Town Fort Collins for Christmas shopping and it was intense. It was a ton of fun and every single store was packed.

I had a blast and it was one of the first times in a decade that I physically left my house to go Christmas shopping.

It was awesome to see so many people shop local for the holidays, but there are certain stores where you can't get the gifts that you need to get for friends, family, and loved ones.

That is when you will find yourself shopping online or going to one of Colorado's malls.
