We take the week off, and do some shopping in the days leading up to Black Friday, but that day, we find something off the beaten path to do. I hate shopping on Black Friday. I did get up really early, against my better judgement, one year to go get a present for my husband that he really wanted. The sale was over 50% off. People were fighting over tools and yanking things out of people's hands. I did get a great picture of the sunrise over the ocean though, and surprised my husband on Christmas.
