Other families have Thanksgiving traditions.
They gather together to eat turkey, watch a sports game and reminisce.
But my family has its own tradition.
Every Black Friday, since I was a young girl, my mom and I would shop.

Rather than being in it for the sales, we’re in it for the experience.
We’re just a little bit crazy
But it’s a tradition
And I’m a sucker for tradition,
