    I think the author is referring to the general pre-Christmas pandemonium following Thanksgiving.

    Living 100 miles from shopping is an advantage at times.

    I only grocery shopped on Friday. Won’t be setting foot in a mall since I can’t afford to buy gifts, and if I could I’d probably shop online. Can you tell I HATE SHOPPING!

    Well, I was going to avoid it all. Then my tv died. Guess if that’s going to happen, Black Friday is a good time for it, did get a good deal on a new one, and crowds weren’t to bad late in the day. Still, ran out got it, went home! That was the extent!

    It is sad to see how poor people are and desperate to get “good deals” and will fight and jostle to get them on a single day.

    I wrote a brief letter to the editor of our local paper two weeks before Thanksgiving, saying we should boycott black Friday. It didn’t get in. I didn’t shop either. I hate trying to get through such heavy and rude crowds. After making a holiday dinner, I just want to relax for a few days. Go shopping in the “maddening crowd”? Not on your life!

    I prefer to do most shopping online, I didn’t have money for black friday since I put in a layaway for my kids last month.

    I did do a bit of shopping Friday, but only for lumber and supplies I needed to finish a home project. And I went to the “corner hardware” store. Even though their prices are higher than the big-boxes there were no crowds and that was worth the extra couple of bucks.
