This is a tradition we've come to look forward to almost as much as Christmas itself.

Every Christmas Eve since 2011, CBC anchor Peter Mansbridge has tweeted his shopping trip to get last-minute gifts, and this year's stream of tweets was as funny as ever. The broadcaster managed to poke fun at globalization, Canada's marijuana laws and even Celine Dion during his outing. Check out some of the best tweets below.
