I managed to make it into the stores front door.
I took one look at the ridiculous lines in the store. and I mean ridiculous.
I promptly tuned around, left the store, and went back to the safety of my home.
it's a stupid commercialized day prompted by big business to encourage human greed. IMO.
now that I am older and wiser I have convinced my entire family to stop feeding into the system.
we buy for the kids only now, if you are over 18 the buck stopped there. sorry about your luck.

I'm not super religious I just don't feed into the commercial thing anymore.
btw, I feel so sorry for those of you on the other side of the pond. Sorry this stupid american tradition is spreading your way.
