FREEHOLD - On the last day before Christmas, many men could be seen doing their last-minute shopping at the Freehold Raceway mall.

Volunteers from Hadassah, working the gift-wrapping counter, say that they saw an increase of men in the mall and in line for gift-wrapping over the past few days.

Some of the male shoppers said they were just too busy to get to the mall earlier, even though they knew that Christmas Day was fast approaching.

Others took the higher numbers of men in the mall as a sign that women may be superior when it comes to planning out holiday shopping.
