Word on the Street: Shopping stress

The lines are long, the stores are packed and your wallet may be thinning as we get into the middle of the holiday shopping season. 



While many love the chaos this time of year, others don't want to deal with the stress that comes with it. 



A recent survey from eBay asked men and women about their holiday shopping habits and what activities are most stressful, so News 12 decided to see what viewers would rather do instead of braving the malls. 



Many say they beat the stress by shopping online or keeping up with other hobbies, but others love to shop for gifts no matter what.
