Every year as the holidays approached, I would get butterflies in my stomach over Black Friday. It marked the first day of Christmas in our household.
Grabbing a Starbucks latte at 4:00am and heading to the shopping mall was invigorating. It was the only thing that my family did traditionally. Normally, our Thanksgivings would be at a restaurant in Santa Barbara or catching a plane somewhere. We were never the typical turkey cutting bunch. But every year, this Black Friday tradition remained whether we ever bought anything or not! Most of the time, it was just about the idea of getting up early and feeding off the energy of Christmas shoppers before dawn.
Now with stores opening right after Thanksgiving dinner, things have changed a little at our house over the holidays. We still wake up early but instead of grabbing our shoes, we throw on a chick-flick, brew hazelnut coffee and tackle some serious online shopping!
Retailers are picking up on this trend and offering the same deals online (at earlier times!) than the storefront.
So if you would like to mix it up this Black Friday, you won’t be missing out.
Grab a coffee. Grab your laptop. Begin a tradition of your own.
