MEDFORD, Ore. -- Humberto Valdivia and Alondra Landeros are getting ready for big celebrations tomorrow.

"We’re going to party," Valdivia said.
"Yeah we're going to cook up some dinner. We're going to go to my step grandmas," Landeros added.

Before they can think about doing that, they have a few errands to run, including getting some last minute wrapping paper and boxes.

"Finish wrapping gifts today. We still have to go to thunderbird, but we'll get it done," Landeros added.
           
Fawn Shinkle and her daughter, Reighly Shinkle, on the other hand, are celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve as per family tradition, and just finished up their Christmas shopping the day of.

"Reighly just got in late last night from LA and so it's a lot less hassle for her. She did bring two suitcases but she's got a lot of presents to buy. Plus it saves her money in Oregon because, no taxes," Fawn Shinkle said.

These two families are just a few out and about Christmas Eve doing some last minute Christmas shopping. According to a survey from the National Retail Federation, six percent of shoppers are out getting last minute gifts today. Less than one percent plan on shopping on Christmas and five percent plan to shop the day after.

Next year Landeros hopes she won't have to do any last minute Christmas shopping and has one piece of advice for those who might.

"Don't do it. It's crazy. Do not do it. It's the worst," she said.
