    And yes! I do know what "Black Friday" is.
    On-line shopping works for me, thus far.
    Ha-wrong!

    I did both online and real life. And because of what I was chasing after, I didn't even need to chase or worry about crushing a 4 year old girl against the wall.

    No, I've never done that but maybe once and I couldn't figure out why people do that after that. I'd rather relax

    Not a chance, we have a tradition of not leaving the house at all the entire weekend after Thanksgiving to avoid the idiots.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Who needs shopping when there's a full lineup of college football on?

    I agree with the Rabbit. There was nothing tantalizing enough to go out for this am.

    Shopping is a sport to me. Black Friday is like the finals. You do it well or you get eaten alive. I usually scour the ads ahead of time and plan exactly what/when I will hit. I don't wait for the stores to open. I arrive just as they've opened ... once the trampling line has pushed through. If you've got a buddy, one stays in line at the register while the other maneuvers through the store. I tend to go alone because it's serious work, and I don't want to be side tracked.

    I'm usually done just as the sun is coming up, and I come home to breakfast on the table. It's a blast!

    I just didn't have it in me this year. I'd already finished my Christmas shopping, and there's nothing I really want for myself right now. But I have been watching the deals online (wait for Cyber Monday) just in case.

    I don't shop on Black Friday, but I did have to drive into the nearest town for a few necessities. I dreaded doing so because the smallish town (around 25,000) is usually congested with traffic from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas is over. I was pleasantly surprised that the traffic was manageable. I do, however, wonder if that fact does not bode well for local retailers.

    Couldn't. Had work. Kind of hard to go black friday or even online when you have work to do.
