For years my sister and I would pour over the sales ads after Thanksgiving dinner, deciding what stores to hit first. We would start very early and end by about 2:00 or so, when the stores are at their worst. Since her death 5 years ago, I just can't do it anymore. I will shop before or after, but not the day after.
We always had a wonderful time and it was as much of a tradition as turkey and dressing! I leave the bargains for those other hearty souls!
