If the mention of Black Friday conjures the images of crazed shoppers trampling their fellow men in order to get a bargain, you are probably related to us. We have tried shopping Black Friday probably about 3 times, and while these attempts were not a complete waste of time, when all was said and done, it was not worth our time to do it, just to get a bunch of... stuff.
So, for the last 5 years our Black Friday looks more like a lazy Sunday. We sleep in, have breakfast at our favorite restaurant, take the kids to the park, lunch on leftovers, watch a little TV, and play some more. We don't agonize over Christmas gifts, because people who truly love you don't need a gift as a reminder that you love them.
And face it, of all the gifts that kids receive, they play with the boxes the most. Right?!?
