Black Friday Humbug

Ok… OK! Enough of Black Friday already!
No, I do not hit the malls or retail stores on Black Friday. I like to spend my Holiday weekend with family. It’s a rare rest period during an extremely hectic season for us. However, if I hated being with my family, I’d head out to the Mall Thursday night. But I don’t, so I wont.

Black Friday Marketing is about creating hype… a feeding frenzy of shoppers who feel they would miss out on the deal if they didn’t shop. I’m not buying into it. I’m not gonna deal with the parking mess or traffic insanity around the malls. I’d rather shop at a manufacturer warehouse sale that Saturday or Sunday.

Some peeps now have Black Friday shopping as a Holiday tradition. I can’t think of a lot of other things to do as a tradition that are not as crazy.

Love baking pies the day before Thanksgiving with my Mother in law.
Love setting the table with fine china and decorations with my daughter on Thursday morning.
Love watching the game with the guys.
Love the “I’m thankful for” round we do at the table while we’re eating.
Love stuffing my face with turkey and then taking a nap on the back porch.
Love family bonding during the holiday kitchen clean up when everyone pitches in.
Love laughing with our neighbors over a piece of pumpkin pie and a glass of wine.
Love sleeping in till 9am the next morning and having pie for breakfast!
Love hiking the local mountains day after Thanksgiving.

Then, I may taking the family to hit a real warehouse sale with real wholesale deals on Saturday.
After all, It’s always Black Friday at!
