In the 1956 Oscar-winning short film "The Red Balloon," it was the balloon that did all the chasing of a little French boy. This weekend, you can turn the tables on the helium-filled children's playthings as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and its Network Challenge -- a race to be the first to find the locations of 10 red balloons somewhere in the continental U.S. However, unlike the cable-friendly antics of a certain notorious Colorado family, this balloon chase is on the up-and-up.

How will the pandemic influence your holiday shopping habits this year?
I will shop online exclusively, for my own safety and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
I will do some shopping online, and some in-person because I want to support merchants in my area.
I will shop online definitely, and I will consider local retailers -- but only if they provide curbside service.
I will only shop in-person because the risks associated with e-commerce outweigh my chance of catching COVID-19.
I will not do any holiday shopping this year due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
