my favorite thing about BF is people watching! I love it when I see newer parents get their hands on the toys they wanted! I guess my kids are older and I miss that excitement.

Best thing is spending time w/ my sister. Even though we txt at least once a day it's still fun to spend time and talk w/ her. The deals are just a plus.

I love the entire experience...the shopping, scouring the ads and compiling my list, planning my agenda, and of course, the rush that comes from scoring a great deal! Thanks to this site, for the past five years or so I have been super prepared!

I like the deals of course, but the true reward to Black Friday is the strategics involved. It's sort of like real world call of duty. 1. Coming up with a plan of attack. 2. Setting up solid teams to do as much damage to your list as possible. 3. Dodging punches, tazers, and line jumpers. 4. Protecting women and small children from crazed overly tired zombies. 5. Rendezvousing back at the Sport-Utility-Vehicle for partaking of the rations. 6. Returning home to cheering family after our long deployment with the rewards of our hard work. Yeah I take this Black Friday thing serious. :gdmilitary:

Spending time with my mom and kids while we shop for bargains. We don't hit doorbusters w/ the kids, but later the four of us will shop and people watch and grab lunch and just soak in a bunch of holiday spirit!

It's hard to nail down once specific thing about Black Friday that I love most, but I would have to say it's the feeling I get when I score something hard to find at a great deal and knowing how happy my son will be when he sees it xmas morning!

I would have to say sharing the info and Christmas cheer(lovingly attained form GD), to help those truly grumpy, impatient, and poorly informed BF shoppers. More than once this has taken a Bf cranky pants to a HO HO Merry Christmas. I look at is as my contribution to making BF shoppers everywhere a little kinder.

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

THIS is my favorite thing about BF -- the anticipation, the nostalgia, the discussion of products and deals. I start checking in late in August hoping someone else wants to talk about BF. Thanks for making this so much fun.

Before GottaDeal, BF was just a sale.
