Retailers are doing their very best to gin up shopping frenzy by opening at 4am, 2am, even midnight after Thanksgiving. Look very carefully, mes amis, at the ads for those "doorbuster specials" as often the merchandise sold at the super low price is limited to one or two of each item, and "no rainchecks given." Can you say "Bait and Switch?"
Une femme cannot abide crowds, especially frenzied crowds and so avoids the retail scene on this day (unless it's a quick pop to the market for more Reddi-Whip to enjoy with a slice of leftover pie) as the Bedlam it is. And no offense meant, but you people who line up at midnight outside of a store and stampede in when the doors open...y'all are NUTS.
What about you? Do you scour the ads and look forward to scoring Black Friday deals? Do you shop in person or only online? Or do you settle in with a roaring fire, a good book and turkey sandwich and ignore the madness completely? (I've added a poll in the right hand sidebar, too.)
