I actually did a little shopping on Black Friday. However, it was in my parent's little upstate NY town, in a yarn shop and a couple of consignment shops. We were the only people there.

I slept most of Thursday, waited until late afternoon Friday to go see Frozen 2 (which was awesome) with a friend, then wandered the local outdoor mall until we were both tired. Slept most of the weekend.

I do NOT miss retail. This was my 2nd year of freedom in 20 years! (Last year was the 1st.)

My holiday was spent in a haze of cold medicine, Mucinex, and cough drops. I worked on Friday (because I could work at home), and had no energy to go anywhere after that. The whole weekend was a repeat of that.
Think of all the money I saved by being too sick to go out!!

We were busy but it wasn't crazy. Our photo department was hopping since it's about the only time of year it is. We have a decent sale on toys but we don't have any hot items. I think the days of big Black Friday sales are over (including the stores open on Thanksgiving). Seems there are "Black Friday" sales starting in the summer and there's nothing special about it anymore.
Do you realize that future generations are going to ask 'Why is it called Black Friday when it lasts for 2 months?'

Work was slow on Black Friday, like it always is here at my restaurant. We're no where near the shopping malls in town. Saturday was extremely slow, but, we were also getting a bad snowstorm that day.

The only shopping I did that day was to drive to the twin cities, and buy some Goose Island Bourbon County beers. Found all I wanted, and no riots at all at the liquor stores.

I resolved to do no shopping on Black Friday. I'll admit I did to a bit of looking online but didn't bite, and I didn't go to any retailers that day.

I spent a crapload that weekend though. ^^;

I actually didn't buy anything except for coffee.

D2, on the other hand, regaled me on Saturday about how much money she spent online...and she constantly complains about being broke (and is apartment-hunting to boot...I don't think the girl realizes what that will cost upfront)

On Friday I went grocery shopping and to Walmart to buy Command hooks for a decorating project that was somewhat less than successful.

The grocery store was predictably dead. Walmart was busy but not crazy.

Grocery stores won't see an uptick until about two weeks before Christmas, when people need their holiday meals.
