With just days until Christmas, retailers are rolling out the red carpet from sun up to sun down.

JC Penney's holiday hours are 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. Toys-R-Us locations will remain open 88 straight hours leading up to Saturday.

"This is going to be one of the highest volume retail periods in the history of mankind and every day from now until Christmas will be massive," says Gerald Storch from Toys-R-Us.

It looks like we are spending more this holiday season than predicted.

The National Retail Federation had been predicting a 2.4 percent increase in holiday sales, but now it looks like the increase could be as high as 3.5 percent.
