I bought a pair for Ecco snow boots and South Park: Stick of Truth from Amazon. That's it for me for Black Friday, there's really no other deal that caught my eye this year.

Very cool. Sounds exciting. I literally bought nothing... which is less exciting.

I shop throughout the year and set aside items special items for Christmas gifts. I don't do Black Friday because I can't stand crowds and waiting in line. My place of business is open on Black Friday and those of us who don't mind working do so that that my co-workers who are the "shoppers" can be off. One of our co-workers that took the day off reported back to us that two grown men were fighting over a waffle iron at Wal-mart and the police had to be called in. A flippin' waffle iron. I see them donated and still brand new in the thrift stores all the time because most people don't even really use the stupid things.

I think with all the earlier and earlier openings, the retailers are defusing the whole "Black Friday" thing anyway without realizing it. More and more I hear people saying they aren't doing it, or are finding their deals online in the peace of their own home. Probably a good thing.

Things were already available online Wednesday, and whatever was not, was online Thursday morning or later in the day. I'm sure that defuses the crowd situation much more nowadays. Ordered the Samsung 55" LED TV Wednesday afternoon with free shipping and it surprisingly got here at my doorstep today, Saturday.

Thanksgiving Day is a day to be at home with the family. There is no way in hell that I would ever even consider going shopping on that day. Black Friday doesn't exist to me, and I think it is a shameful, pathetic aspect of American society.

Black Friday must be the most pathetic tradition in this country.

We ended up buying the last two seasons of Mad Men on Blu-ray for 9 dollars each. Oh, and I picked up the Lego Movie on Blu-ray for 4 bucks.
