So, it's a tradition for many people in USA to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. It's called Black Friday. Many people will get up very early to get low prices. I was thinking about going, but I think I'll shop online for the deals. I see many websites allow that for some of the offers. Yea. Plus it's free shipping, too. It can be very crazy. One year we went to Walmart on "Black Friday" and someone stole one of our items out of our shopping cart! Plus, we had to go searching for carts (the employees didn't make sure they had a good stock of carts). The lines were very long. Last year I went to Office Max to buy a few items & they only had one register opened for the longest. . It took around 1.5 to 2 hours to check out! My S.I.L (sister-in-law) goes shopping during this time & she goes to multiple shops. How many people act during this time, it is just too crazy for me. What about you, will you go shopping tomorrow? Have you done all your holiday shopping? If not in USA, tell us about your traditions what you do after a holiday & if you have any special traditions. Thank you all. Happy postings, have a nice day!

We are going shopping this morning. We are planning only to hit one store while shopping and it's not in a big town or anything. We did run into a woman one year while shopping that lost items from her cart as well. She had her back turned for one second and someone walked buy and just took things from her cart and she had no idea until she wanted to check out. We're really not planning on hitting multiple stores this morning so hopefully it doesn't turn out so bad.

Awww, yes that's what happened to us. We had our cart there & we were looking at something & BOOM someone took it from our cart while we weren't looking. I thought it was pretty childish. Well we decided not to go this year which I think was better. Thanks for responding. Pablo

Awww, well I always recommend if someone is going to buy something they should do it in cash or at least know what they are getting themselves into. They shouldn't go wild spending, but there was a lot of cheap prices out there. :) Pablo

I don't know if I will need to go to the store and get anything but I know I am not planning to. Saving a few bucks is greatly offset by the standing in lines, the crowds, the frustration, the parking mess, the gasoline, the trouble and the time. I would rather pay a bit more than have to deal with any of that. I will be at home so don't anyone worry about me stealing the last "sale" item you were looking for.

I'm sure a lot of people do similar. It's too crazy in those crowds, righ? Plus there are other ways to get low prices. Have a nice day. Pablo

For the first time in about twenty years, no. I recently moved from the United States to Colombia, South America with my wife and our son. It felt so strange today not eating turkey and watching football and I don't mean soccer. Real American Football. I still have to get up at 5:00 AM to get my son ready for school but I won't be fighting my way through the crowds to find that special gift. I know I am going to miss it and my favorite radio station back home will start playing Christmas carols. I guess I could go downtown and elbow a few people and try to grab a item that someone one was looking at to try to get the Christams spirit.

Wow, you live in Columbia? That is SO cool. I speak Spanish (as second language). I would LOVE to be there now. Heheheheh. Wow that's a big move to do. Hm, well it can be hard when you are moving though, but I guess you are used to it since you've been there for 20 years now. You must speak Spanish pretty well, too. Have a nice day. Pablo
