Ho ho ho and go go go shopping! Santa's entrance into New York's Herald Square marked the official start of the holiday shopping season. Since the economy is sagging and there are just a limited number of days until Christmas, stores are trying their best to get you though their doors — fast! Big-name retailers are offering incredible door buster deals on the hot items of the season, but you have to be willing to get out of bed early!

Are you going to brave the crowds and sacrifice shuteye for the incredible deals?
