Black Friday

With all the ads promising sales galore, Black Friday seems to be an event many shoppers don't want to miss.

Except me.

I've done done it, though I have thought about experiencing it just once. Still, I haven't seen that there are any deals worth the fuss of getting up that early and missing out on the time I'm usually spending with family. Besides, I caught the early sales before the holidays, so my Christmas shopping is taken care of and I got a good deal on things. It's not like the Black Friday sales are saving me 50% off the video game my hubby wants, and I found 50% off many wonderful things at Hobby Lobby before Thanksgiving, and I didn't have to fight the crowds.

What's your favorite part of the day after Thanksgiving? For me, it's spending time with family and eating leftovers. We play games, watch football, and visit. Then I go home and put up my Christmas tree!!!

Cleaning and decorating blitz! I didn't even know about Black Friday until college.

I'm with you. I've already done all my Christmas shopping and short of holding a gun to my head, no one could get me to go out on Black Friday. I spent this holiday camping, miles from civilization anyway ;)
