ATLANTA (AP) -- Analysts say many shoppers haven't been in the holiday spirit when it comes to spending money.

The four-day Black Friday weekend that started on Thanksgiving, was strong. Sales rose 2.7. But ShopperTrak says sales fell 4.3 percent for the week ending Dec. 15. Last week, ShopperTrak forecast holiday spending to decrease 2.5 percent.

Previous expectations were for a 3.3 percent increase.
