Busting Out of Black Friday

And just WHAT is wrong with shopping at 8 pm instead of freaking midnight? I am so happy Wal-Mart led this move and so many other retailers followed suit. I spend a pretty set amount on presents during the holiday season. I enjoy the hustle and bustle and my family and I are temporarily on the opposite coast from the rest of the family. We'd probably sit around playing cards and talking on Thanksgiving night if we were together, which we aren't. The dishes are washed, the tree is up, and I can sit around watching tv or get some Christmas shopping done. I have noticed that except for the door buster specials, there's really nothing in the stores that's a better deal on Black Thurs/Fri than on any other day of the week. Caveat emptor.

Same here. Nothing I've seen in either the newspaper or online ads makes me want to run out and find a parking place. Most of this years current crop of prices are on par with what I've seen throughout the past year.

You know, it's bad enough that we see Christmas decorations start going up in some stores before the Fourth of July, but now, some big retailers just can't wait for dessert after Thanksgiving before trying to rack up more sales:

Retailers this year will open for Black Friday sales early enough to make shoppers choose between hot deals and hot apple pie after Thanksgiving dinner.

From Toys R Us to Target to Walmart, retailers are opening as early as 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night.

Toys R Us announced Monday that its Black Friday will begin on...
