I just posted a message in Suggestions and Tips that probably should've gone here. Sorry all. I'm new to Black Friday, having only been out a few times and that was probably 10 years ago the day after Thanksgiving. People are crazy when they go out the day after Thanksgiving. :D As for me, my shopping is all but complete as of now - I think I have two gifts left to purchase so I'm not totally done just yet - and it's October!

If anyone has any good suggestions for gifty stuff that I could go get on Black Friday at Wal-Mart, Target, or Michael's, please drop me a post.

Thank you.

I love to go on Black Friday, I have been going for about 10 or 11 years straight now. I like to just laugh at all the nasty greedy people that are trampling and grabbing & stealing. (Although I am also out there to get a great electronic buy for my family or something, I'm not stupid - I dont get up at 4am just to people watch) Sometimes I'll break out in Christmas songs - just to try to snap people out of it. Christmas isnt all about buying & spending and gifts - the real "reason" obviously is jesus (Im not a religious freak, just stating a fact), but above all, its a time for family & warm twinkling lights, and depending where you live, hopefully big soft snowflakes dropping silently to the ground. HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL!!!!! Only 76 Days!!!!
