Love the pics, although I never shop on Black Friday. Too many people being rude to one another, and too many people, period. I don't like crowds.

I wish they didn't call it "Black Friday." Reminds me the stock market crash of 39, and implies gloom and doom. I know they call it Black Friday because the merchants are hoping to sell enough to be in the black, but they could call it "Green Friday". After all, paper money is green. Or even "Gold Friday". Anything but "Black Friday!"
