I just looked through some Black Friday ads online. There's nothing on sale that inspires me go out there and deal with the crowds.

I'm going to shop online and call it a day.

I won't be going out early, but my husband and I will sometimes hit a few stores after the hoopla dies down, around 10ish. We've managed to still score a few good deals that way. We don't go nuts to get them, but if we happen upon them then cool. It's our own little holiday kick-off.

This was news to me 17 or so years ago - and obviously I haven't forgotten.

Actually I am way over it, but still wouldn't brave Black Friday for anything.
There is no way, I don't care what the store is offering, that I would go out on BF ever again. I did the same thing with a Cabbage Patch doll that my daughter wanted the first year they came out. A friend of mine had an inside tip that Toys R Us would have a bunch on their shelfs for BF. My mom and I went, got one of the dolls and as I was walking away, some lady grabbed it out of my arms so hard, that it almost always knocked me over. Scared me so bad, that i would never go back again. On a good note, I did manage to get another one a few weeks later, without the fear of it being ripped out of my arms. :sad

How do I feel about Black Friday? well I think my FB post pretty much sums it up..

" I observe "black Friday" on other days through the week.. Such as "is this crud over with already? Wednesday " and "In January, stores will get back to normal , Saturday" "

You aren't the only one. I despise this day and think it is so stupid. If I want something I will buy it online or better yet locally on the 24th.

I must live in a very boring area. Our lines at our local Macy's for BF are pleasant and everyone shares coupons that they won't need or has extras of, and we even actually move out of the way for wheelchair people.

Crazy.

Never have, never will go out shopping on Black Friday. I am not into being beaten up.

What am I missing?

You hate the fact that stores are open ? Or people have to work?

I hate stores are open on THANKSGIVING DAY. Black Friday is not for me anyway, shape or form. Those that want to work ok those that don't want to work on THANKSGIVING DAY should not IMO have to be made to.

I've got gifts to get and I'm as cheap as can be. But nothing could induce me to deal with BF.

Being from Canada, we have Boxing day the 26th of December, and I have ALWAYS wanted to be in the USA for just one Black Friday. However, after reading a lot of these threads, I think I will wait a wee bit

I will shop online however in my jammies and

I guess our boxing day is kinda like black Friday. Only boxing day isn't as violent or rough. Lol. Not sure i ever want to attempt black Friday. I hate crowds while shopping. Not worth the fight IMO.
