    Ok so I see people posting so obviously not everyone is out in the madness of pepper spraying for Jesus' upcoming birthday :rolleyes: (I'm sure that's what he would have done right? :rolleyes:). So what do those of you who stay out of that mess do on the Friday after TG? We slept in. Had some more pie for breakfast. In a bit we are getting ready to decorate our tree and house. We do this every year. It's our little tradition for this day. So what are you guys up to? Anyone else have any traditions for this day?

    I did go grocery shopping this morning. Came home and relaxed then went for a long walk with Steven looking for returnables. A nice man stopped and gave us all the ones in the back of his truck:) We usually just hang out and relax the day after Thanksgiving. I just couldnt handle the stress of the nutjobs out there today, not that Im calling any of our CWDers nutjobs mind you;)

    To tell you the honest truth, it is a little after 5 pm and I'm still in my pj's! :eek: I had a very productive lazy day. :p They are rare for me so I took advantage of it! ;)

    Sound very nice. I have alot of friends out shopping, one was sitting in a lawn chair outside of Target last night waiting for it to open! I told her she was crazy!:eek:
    It's just after 3 and we are all in our PJs too! It's been part productive and part lazy for us. I listed a new art project on Etsy, Twittered some sales for my other web site, we have been grazing today and watching TV and now we are making ornaments. Noone has touched the dishes yet. ;)

    we all slept in way to late :p we are still chilling in our jammies and eating left overs and watching princess movies. First black Friday I haven't been out shopping it in a while and I am glad to say I think this will be a new tradition here

    Sleep, eat leftovers, clean the house, do dishes... and eventually we wondered out to the store because we desperately needed to buy toilet paper. It wasn't so scary out but we waited until afternoon :)

    Never ever do I go shopping on Black Friday. Spent the day waiting for the repairman to come to fix the furnace. Staying bundled up. Furnace repairman came and put a temporary fix on the furnace. He had to order the part and it will be here on Monday or Tuesday and he will come out to replace the part.
    For now we have heat.

    We don't have any traditions for the Friday after Thanksgiving, but do try to have a low-key day. DD and I went to the grocery store after walking my brother's dog (my mom is dog-sitting while they are out of town).

    We had turkey sandwiches for dinner and watched "How the Grinch Stole Christmas": ?Maybe Christmas,? he thought, ?doesn?t come from a store.?
    ?Maybe Christmas?perhaps?means a little bit more!?

    That sums up our approach to the day.

    I went BF shopping last year, but this year my babysitters (mom and DH) both had to work, so i stayed home. I did go out grocery shopping from 9am-11am, the crowd wasn't that bad by that time in the day. All the big sales were pretty much over by then. In the afternoon we tried to see a movie, but the theater was packed and all the "kid friendly" movies were sold out. So we rented a movie (zookeeper. it was hilarious) and watched it at Grandma's house.
