Day After Thanksgiving

When We Were Young And Innocent Shoppers (Black Friday 2006)

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.

Then one year Skye joined in.

And our shopping cadre was complete.

Rising before dawn, stopping for a fast food breakfast along the way, we go to stores searching for Christmas presents and cheap sweaters.

Unlike most Black Friday shoppers, we’ve never searched out one big item – something worth the lack of sleep and line standing required.

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,
