Shopping Spree! Or Frenzy?

Get your shopping gear on cuz we have HUGE sales for this Friday, November 24th! I must be silly, but I’m kinda excited for this event. I’ve never been to one before, so I’m planning to go with the family to get some early Xmas shopping done. *Hints*

But I have heard some outrageous stories of how people waking up like 4 in the morning just to be the first in line and then scrabble and hustle toward the most coveted items they want to get before it’s all gone! Talk about survival of the fastest, or is it the most strategic?

Known as Black Friday, the origin of this holiday is unknown, or at least that’s what Wikipedia says. I didn’t know that there are this many stores participating.

You can check them out with these two links below:

Good luck with the rush of the shopping frenzy! I’m not sure if the crowd is too nice on this day. If you all see a 5-foot Asian girl hidden under a stampede of feet, yeah, that’ll be me… *winks*

    Good luck lady – I’ve sworn off shopping on this most unholy of shopping days for good. Just tired of the nastiness of fellow shoppers and don’t find the deals worth getting up so early and fighting the old ladies with shopping carts for.

    I know some people who wouldn’t dream of missing the sales though and do find some great stuff. Since this is your first time, I definitely suggest getting up early to be in line when the store opens – you might be surprised by how quickly things clear out in just a couple of hours.

    Good luck and watch out for the shopping carts – they hurt when they hit. :)
