    No plans for fighting the crowds on Black Friday. However, I am taking a painting class that afternoon. The studio is located in a large shopping area so I will be fighting traffic.

    No, I always plan to stay home that day.  I don't think there's anything that would make me go shopping on black Friday, lol.

    I am not among the brave. I hide at home that day and make up for sales all year long that are not as stressful to get.

    Many of the big stores that have deals on Black Friday have some of the same deals online with free shipping. I stay home and jammie surf. The last time I did Black Friday was four years ago. We had mobs of people grabbing and pushing ahead in checkout lines with only three checkers on duty in the whole store. Bleh. Standing in line with twenty people in front of me and others trying to take cuts is not an experience that I want to repeat. The closest town with great shopping is an hour away - so I would have to pay around twenty-five bucks in gas plus my time and wear and tear on the car to get the "deals". I am going to fix my cocoa, don my fuzzy robe and slippers, and get a few things online. Not going near the madhouse.

    Strangely, I'm not participating in it this year. Our family's entire Christmas gift is visiting Disneyland for Christmas, complete with riding the train to Anaheim and back (because it's not much of a present for the adults to have to drive in holiday traffic for 9+ hours each way!). The kids know this is what we're doing, so other than a few surprises that I already have set aside for them to open, there aren't going to be any gifts to wrap.

    I already have the gifts for my nieces and nephews set aside, and we're giving the adults in the extended family homemade gifts or photo books.

    Then again, my laptop computer is on its last legs, and our TV has started making a high pitched whine. We've also been discussing on whether or not to replace our 12 year old microwave (it has also started having issues). If any of those items are on a really good sale, *maybe* I'll brave the crowds.

    But likely not. I wouldn't mind staying home that day!

    My black Friday planning has been the same for a long time.  A nice breakfast at home with my family. Then we will put up our Christmas trees and decorate for the holidays.  We will have lunch at our favorite Chinese buffet and I'll make a pot of chili for supper.  This is a much nicer start to our holiday season.
