BLACK FRIDAY!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices - C. Dan Joyner 21498

Did you know that many online retailers do the whole Black Friday thing just like their retail counterparts in the mall and elsewhere around the shopping world? Yep. They sure do, and I take advantage of this convenience every year. But don’t get me wrong…I am not saying that I optBlack Friday Madness for the online shopping over the mall and other real life stores. Uh–no. If fact I spend most of my day with my daughter kicking around the stores, people watching…and we always have the best time. I buy very little, but I always walk away with new and greater insights into what makes people tick – especially during the holidays!

So…did you dare brave the crowds (and their behavior!) of Black Friday? If so, how did you fare? Do you have a tradition? Get up at the crack of dawn? That’s another tradition my daughter and I have…we usually don’t get to the stores until after lunch! HAHA!!

HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!

Black Friday is always a great day to catch up on other stuff that does NOT require heading out to the overcrowded stores and malls.  Glad that many have added it to their online presence, but it's also a great day to stay away from shopping completely.

A friend of mine describes Black Friday as "a day when democratic American Christians empty their wallets to buy stuff made by communist Chinese atheists".

Good point(s), Drick...spoken like a practiced veteran.

I am a student of human behavior, however, and to me this day is like the first day of hunting season to a deer hunter! HaHa! I probably didn't spend $75 all day, but I bet I could write 37 case studies, replete with diagnoses and DSM-IV-TR support documentation (where applicable--not everyone IS or HAS something...many are just selfish or angry or mean or scared, etc...)

Happy NO SHOPPING B.F. to you!

Last year was the first time I did Black Friday.  Spent the night camped out with the oldest son at a Portland area electronic store to get a computer for my wife.  We had a great time - he took his bike and cruised the parking lot, did time trials on his laps, snacked, chatted between ourselves and the other campers...  Was a great bonding experience. Youngest son wanted to do the same this year but we could not find a deal that we wanted to camp out for.  We are looking forward to next year so we can find a camping out deal.  Would I do it otherwise - no way.  Too easy to get it on line but a great way to spend time with the kids.

Went with my wife this year for the first time ever.  3 a.m. trip to the mall.   Wasn't the nightmare I expected, but definitely not something I plan to make a tradition!
