We had a Thanksgiving meal at our neighbours’ home. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience; a four hour meal from 3pm.

Since Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday, the following day is generally taken as holiday. This Friday is a big day for shopping; a day for the sane to avoid stores at all costs. I was astonished to see one of the major department stores, JC Penny, advertising that it was open from 4am on Friday. 4am is not a time I wish to be awake, let alone in a shop; certainly not the day after a feast.

There was a tiny part of me that felt I should experience this crazy shopping experience first hand, so I could blog about how different it felt from the UK. This part was suppressed by the far more sensible parts that wanted to stay in bed and away from the crowds.

So here are a couple of links from those who have had first experience of shopping on Black Friday
