Now to the wild weekend for last-minute Christmas shoppers just count them four days to go to buy those gift. Oh, better get that shopping dong. Procrastinators are out in full force causing mall madness. ABC's Gloria Riviera is in silver spring, Maryland. Good morning, Gloria. Reporter: Good morning, Paula. Ryan, this is the calm before the storm. But I can tell you I think a lot of people are breathing easier this morning after a successful day of gift buying yesterday.

They are the kind of lines that get procrastinators' blood pumping, super Saturday, the last Saturday before Christmas and all about the sales, sales, sales. This sweater was $5. I got the iPhone 6.

Just don't get your wife a gift card. Gloria, real briefly, Ryan wants to know if you bought him socks for him. He asked yesterday. The socks are coming, Ryan.
