Well, just to follow up:
I checked through my GA and traffic from December 26th through Jan 25th is 11% higher over the "peak" buying period of November 26th through December 25th of 2011.
On my other ecommerce site, it is down 15%, which is about what I would have expected.
I am, of course, happy about the increased traffic. Just wish that it would convert better.
