Not me, that's for sure. For generations, my family's Black Friday tradition has been to start the Christmas cookie baking/freezing.
Are any of you planning on fighting the crowds tomorrow???
I did it once, not my idea of fun! I usually don't even go out at all unless it's to a park or the beach.

Well, WryLilt, then you're just gonna have to take a trip over here to experience Black Friday madness.

LOL I just posted on a facebook a countdown to black friday - I'll be one of those crazy people out there!
I'm beginning to learn that Black Friday is similar to the old Boxing day sales in the UK - when people camped out all night for a bargain. Madness!

I'm never too keen on shopping, but my brother insists we have to go to base and get the MS Office upgrade. Also they have children's board games for $3, that I can use for therapy.
No shopping for me. Instead I'm treating some friends to the ICE! at Gaylord Palms show tomorrow.
It's an ice sculpture show with 2 million pounds of ice blocks lit up as well as colored, inside a cooled down giant tent structure.

I tossed around the idea of putting this thread in religion and beliefs, or politics and social issues, but I couldn't justify it...the fact that November has become the month of Black Fridays, courtesy of American retailers, is just too weird. But I do wonder what Jesus would think of it.As those...
