Ok, show of hands! How many of you crazy cats went out this morning for some Black Friday shopping? I thought about it. Seriously thought about it. But, I have realized that as I get older, I value my sleep a little more than saving money. I admit though, I was one of those jerks who went shopping on Thanksgiving Day. I ended up going to Michael's for some much needed Christmas craft supplies. My husband and daughter tagged along just to see the lines at Best Buy and Toys R Us, which Allison found the people with their fire pits and tents quite amusing.
I think the day after Thanksgiving is one of my favorites of the year. It's the kick off to the Christmas season, so we always spend the day decorating the house and tree. This also starts our family nights of holiday movie watching. Don't you just love holiday movies? The lights will be turned on outside, Christmas music will flow through the house, we will start on our handmade gifts for the year, and our Elf on the Shelf returns. The girls have their own little trees they keep in their rooms and were so excited, they ended up putting them up after Thanksgiving dinner.
While my next month is super busy, I am looking forward to every minute of it!
Do you have any day after Thanksgiving traditions? If you went shopping, did you get what you went after?
