I think it depends on when you consider Black "Friday" to start. JCP online on Saturday, Kohl's Sunday night, BB Elite Access Sunday night, the joke of member/cardholder early access for BB/Target, lots of online starting Tuesday night, the rest starting Wednesday night, Thursday afternoon openings, and then finally Friday.... 75%+ of advertised items were probably on sale before Friday even came.

Even though the big day is over it doesn’t really sink in for me until sometime in January when all the festivities are over and there’s still 3-4 months of winter left. At this point I still have more shopping and events to keep me busy to help avoid the withdrawal symptoms.

I typed in google how many days until Nov. 23, 2018 and it says 361, the count down app says 360.  So maybe one is counting both today and the 23rd and the other is not???   Either way its turning into a whole week instead of a day.  Remember when there was just 6 or 7 hours of doorbusters?

Those were the good old days. You had to have a plan and execute it quickly to gt everything you wanted. I us to hate when I realized I would be in the slow lines becuase it cost me time I did not have. Now you can almost stroll and get stuff.

Or, stay up late nights on the couch and click to get stuff. I got everything on my must-have list entirely online this year and didn't set foot in store. There were a few things I would have grabbed at Home Depot, Menards, and Joann, but I just didn't want to leave the house and drive 30 minutes for small stuff.

The 2017 BF forums have been archived. As always, we'll keep this main BF forum open all year. I've kept the t-shirt contest thread, the 'countdown' thread and a few of the still-active holiday threads in here.

 

Feel free to post any news you come across about Black Friday 2018 or retail changes in general (store closings / bankruptcies / mergers / acquisitions).

Mine will be this weekend hopefully. We went out of town after Christmas so didn't get it down yet. Real tree still smells SO good though.

My tree was turning into a fire hazard, so it went down on 1/2.

I thought ours would also. I expected to come back to needles falling off all over. I was wrong, the thing is still very soft and fragrant.

Well...we just had our last Christmas party Sunday! Was postponed from New Year's because I got food poisoning two days before I was to host. Then, icy conditions almost postponed it again... but we did it and everyone got here and back home safely. Thinking about having Christmas in July....maybe pizza. So, Christmas decorations and lights are coming down today. Will leave some of my snowmen up for a couple more weeks. It looks so bare. ☃️

When I archived the BF forum from last year I split the countdown thread into 2 parts and kept the pre-BF 2017 posts in another thread in the archived 2017 forum.

 

Unless you are confusing this one for the t-shirt contest thread.

Well I opened my new Christmas club account last week and already have a good chunk of change on there.  It will be nice to see that amount keep building over the next several months just I can spend most of it on BF :)

Brad, since you root for the Milwaukee Brewers, here's the Black Friday countdown for you:

 

199 bottles of beer  :beer: on the wall, 199 bottles of beer :beer: .  Take one down, pass it around; 198 bottles of beer :beer: on the wall.

198 bottles of beer  :beer: on the wall, 198 bottles of beer  :beer: .  Take one down, pass it around; 197 bottles of beer  :beer: on the wall.

 

197 bottles to Black Friday.

I used to start really getting in the mood for the holidays as soon as the weather started cooling off. I'd be ready for Christmas music in September.  Over the last few years, it's gotten earlier and earlier. Now it's like I get in the mood as soon as the weather starts getting hot!  The last few days, I've really been anxious for the Black Friday on Gottadeal forums.

I have been trying to curb my excitement by researching toys I think will be great gifts! We have started rewards in my school for good behaviors......and I love to shop so for me it is a new sport!
