Most people I know headed out to shop at the crack of dawn today. I have absolutely no interest in shopping on "Black Friday", nor have I ever. I enjoy shopping, (only when I have money to spend - hate window shopping!) but the reason Black Friday doesn't appeal to me is that it involves large crowds and long lines. Yeah, I know that sounds bizarre for someone to say who's always getting up in front crowds large and small, talking. But it's just who I am. I try to go to stores or restaurants or whatever when the least amount of people are there.
I'm really going to enjoy a quiet day at home today pulling out my Christmas decorations and putting up my trees which is what I always do the day after Thanksgiving. This is really important to me. If you want to know why I will be putting up at least five Christmas trees this year, read this.
