My DIL does all her shopping that one day....however, having worked at walmart for
23 years, and doing 23 Black Fridays, I refuse to get out in that kind of feverish activity.
I just dont think it is worth that....

is the quiet voice at the

will try again tomorrow!"

My mom and sister do BF but I haven't gone the last few years. The last time I went, I picked up some things to buy at Old Navy and then saw the length of the line (to the back of the store) and put it all back.

This year, I MAY do BF. We have a big item we want to purchase for the kids (one of those game box bundles) and if there is a great deal on one we might venture out.

Nope, never have, and will most likely not ever do it.

Nope! I don't enjoy shopping regularly and I won't participate in that fiasco. I've been to too many third world countries where people don't have access to clean water and basic necessities. I think American consumerism can get way out of hand.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

NO WAY!!! I am totally disgusted by how early these stores are starting the sales. At my house - Thanksgiving is still about family....Not things, so I will avoid Black Friday at all costs.
I heard someone say recently that only in America will people battle others for a bauble the day after being thankful for what they have!!!

I'm working that day...thankfully. I don't do black friday. I did it one year and watched fools rip the door off the walmart and run a pregant women over. I swore then and there this would not happen again and it hasn't. Nothing they have is worth getting run down for.

So, do you plan on doing any Black Friday sales? And if so, how early are you willing to get up?
