I've been a Black Friday shopper as long as I can remember.
When I was a little girl my mom and I would sit down Thanksgiving afternoon-after all the food was put away and the dishes were done-with the department store sale ads spread from one side of the living room to the other. We plotted our course, make our lists, and went to bed early.
Each department store had a different gimmick to get you in the door. Usually, the first (x) number of shoppers at in each store got an ornament, cracker jack box, or other trinket with a secret percentage code discount or instant shopping spree inside.
It was thrilling.
We woke up around 4:30am, dressed in our puffy paint Christmas sweatshirts, donned our Santa hats, jeans, and tennis shoes and off we went to the join our fellow happy 'Day After Thanksgiving' shoppers (long before the term Black Friday was coined). Most people were kind, saved places in line for one another. Laughed and giggled excitedly about the mystery sales of the day. Some years my mom and I were home with our treasures before my brothers and dad were even awake!
Naturally, when I became a mom I wanted to carry on the tradition of insane early morning after Thanksgiving deals with my girls. Big Sister was a 3 month old nursing 'shopper' her first Black Friday. She slept thru the early morning adventure. Two years later, Big Sister stayed home in bed with Breadwinner as a 3 month old Little Sister and I went out for bargains. Little Sister didn't want to miss a thing! She was Mommy's wide eyed helper happily tagging along in her sling all morning.
This year- much like last year- they will stay snug as bugs in bed as Mommy ventures out. What can I say? I'm a sucker for deals.
