^ That right there. And, more and more, the gifts we do exchange center around doing something together rather than adding stuff to the pile. 

We have friends like that.  Absolutely go crazy for it.  There will be 8-10 women in their group. They stay up all night and turn it into a party.  By noon on Friday they are drunk as skunks. 

You used to be my friend.

To me the Irony is Thanksgiving....we are praying to be grateful for what we have, then the next day we get up early to stand in line at a retailer for mega sales. But I guess we’re kind of saying the same thing

I refuse to shop the weekend after Thanksgiving. No "deal" is worth that BS. Christmas capitalism can suck it.

The only black Friday sale that I've felt was worth the BS was Redhead jeans at $10 a pair. The BassPro in Columbia was close to home and was never as stupid as Wally world. More civilized. I could get two or four pairs for $20 or $40. Then back to bed😀. They last 3 to 4 yrs for me. Still think that was a good deal.

Back in the day, Bass Pro had Zoom at 50% off. I may have bought a bunch of soft plastic that day. That was worth getting up for, IMO. 

In general, I don’t participate. TBH, I’m 2 plus hours away from anywhere that has lots of shopping options so it’s kind of a non starter for me.

Being a "get off my lawn" kind of guy, (Well maybe not quite that bad). lol  I have always struggled to be among the masses at Christmas time. The transition to on-line shopping was an answered prayer. That is as close as I will get to a department store for the next couple of months!!!  

Luck is where preparation meets opportunity...... Or you could just flip a coin???B)

My wife’s family are so excited about Black Friday that they all go ape shot. They are so jazzed and smiling that i guarantee that it’s super enjoyable for them. Their whole culture revolves around money....saving money, coupons, free stuff, etc. it’s hard for me to fathom sometimes, but I get used to it. 
I’ve attached a few Black Friday stats

I've fished on "black friday" every year for at least the past 12 years.  I highly recommend it.  I'll be in SO IL this year, so I'll likely be brushpile crappie fishing or tossing suspend jerkbaits for bass. Might toss some big baits for muskies.

 

Just took Monday off, I think I'll be chasing smallies on the lower current Sunday/Monday after the holiday!
