It's t-shirt time! This one will be the easiest one yet.

Simply reply to this thread with your favorite thing about about Black Friday.

For you forum lurkers, this is a great chance to make your first post. Register for a free account if you don't have one and post away (registering will also get rid of those annoying ads).

The contest will run until 8pm ET on Thursday. At that point I'll randomly choose 5 winners who will receive Black Friday t-shirts.

If we can get at least 200 people to reply to the thread, I'll double the number of prizes to 10 t-shirts!, so send this page to your friends/family, post it on Facebook, etc...

The anticipation, planning and excitement. And the last few moments before the door at BB opens.

While I love everything about Black Friday, and look forward to it every year, my favorite part is spending the day with my Gramma.

My favorite thing is the excitement of wake up super early (maybe this year don't even go to bed at all) be in line with my attack plan, and get ALL the items that I want from all the stores. It is my own satisfaction and mission accomplished to get everything and so far I have been successful every year. Also, the snow globe from JCPenney.

I love the planning. I spend HOURS on GottaDeal.com checking out the ad previews, reading the forums, planning where I am going to go first.

My favorite thing is that after Thanksgiving dinner, my sister comes over and we recheck our ads and list. Then, we try and take a nap (usually never happens, too EXCITED:) We make sure we got everything and then get ready to ROLL!!

Definitely finding the best deals! I love looking thru all the early ads! I love spending the time with my sister and friends! We always meet some great people while waiting in line! It's always a lot of fun. Although we now just stay up on thursday since the stores open so early on friday!

It is the official kick off of the Christmas Season for our family and a major Holiday Tradition at our house...that is the best thing about Black Friday...the planning, plotting, anticipation just adds to the excitement of the season. :yup:

I like the good, and sometimes great, deals I get on Black Friday. And as long as things remain civil (which for the most part they do), I like the "adventure" of working through the lines and stores to get the deals. (No, really.)

My favorite thing about Black Friday is the shopping and trying to get the door buster items. I also like talking and swapping stories with the people standing in line next to me.

I love everything about Black Friday. I love the planning, and the shopping and the thrill of actually getting what I was after. Plus once out of every 9 years or so BF is on my daughter's birthday (next one is 2013).
