New York (KTNV) -- The holiday season is upon us, but you may be surprised that you have fewer days to prepare for the holidays this year.

This year, Thanksgiving falls on Nov. 28.

That means there are only 25 days between Black Friday and Christmas.

To put it into perspective, last year there were 31 days.

Regardless of the time crunch, analysts expect people to buy the same amount of stuff as last year.

Experts said one of the least crowded times to go shopping is the week after Black Friday, when others are all shopped out.
