No, the Friday after Thanksgiving....it is suppose to be the biggest shopping day of the year and sets tone for sales for the Holiday season!

I've never wanted to get up that early and battle all the crazy people who will run you down trying to get in the doors first! Is it worth it?! They'd have to be giving away FREE stuff I think to make it worth it for me!
They are already doing sales here. I think it's because of the recession. They're worried that people aren't going to be buying as much this year, which is probably true.
I do want to get a new TV this year since they're all going digital. They'd have to have some pretty darn good sales on TV's to make me want to battle those crowds. We shall see!
So, do you get into it, Suzi?

It's funny....I have most of my shopping done...but I do love the hustle and bustle!  If I haven't shopped yet, I would hate going out to have to look for things, but since it is practically done, to go out for a couple of little things is fun for me.

You're done shopping already??!! Ok, that's just not right. ;P I haven't even THOUGHT about what I'm getting! Maybe I'd be less stressed if I'd get all my stuff done early too. But then that would mean I'd have to be more organized, lol.

I haven't gone out on black friday in years! And I'm not this year either. Most of my shopping is done... all I need are a few stocking stuffers and my son to write his letter to Santa asking for what I already got :) .

black friday sounds so scary,really! I was watching the cop show called Life last night,and it was about the black friday shopping.If i hadnt have seen this post i would have wondered what was going on!! So thanks for posting it,I have never heard of it before.I love a bargain too,but all those people pushing you around,looks a bit daunting to me.

Post script  ...  I found some good stuff but when I went to pay the line was soooo long I went to put the items down ,then I had an idea I went to the jewellry counter and picked up a cheap Xmas pin and also paid for the other stuff, there,much to the chagrin of some of the folks in the Looooong line,I  sailed past them and out of the store in a few mins!!!

NO WAY would I ever shop on black friday.  You'd have to have some sort of death wish-literally!  Why should I go OUT to shop, when I can find some awesome deals on-line?
