NEW YORK (PIX11) -- Procrastinators, rejoice.

There’s a shiny silver -- or perhaps more appropriately, green -- lining to waiting until a week before Christmas to start buying gifts.

Thursday is Free Shipping Day, created in 2007 by the founders of FreeShipping.org to give shoppers a day of online shopping without paying extra for the convenience.

Thousands of retailers across the web are participating. And they promise that anything you buy today will be delivered by Christmas Eve.
