One Hundred and Seventh Question

When do you start your Christmas shopping? Will you actually go shopping on Friday (as everyone knows is the busiest shopping day of the year)?

    I already started. But I've only bought one gift. And there's no way in hell I'm going shopping on Friday. I'm no masochist.

    I thought I was going to get all of my shopping done in October. I bought one gift. Now I have only a few weeks and not enough money so everyone is gonna get screwed this year. Sorry guys, but I'm poor.
    I will NOT venture into Chattanooga on Friday for ANY reason. There are more idiot drivers concentrated here than anywhere on earth.

    Two days before Christmas. If it needs to be shipped I purchase the items online and ship it directly to the recipient.

    I refuse to start until after Thanksgiving. Sometimes I go out Friday morning, but usually I start the following week.

    I usually procrastinate and wait til about 2 weeks before Christmas to shop, but this year I started early. However, I'd rather have boiling oil and paprika poured into my eye sockets than go shopping on black Friday. Have you ever noticed when you watch a news clip of everyone shopping B.F. morning that they either look like they're about to strangle a cheating spouse, or like they were a star in "Night of the Living Dead"? That's company I do NOT wish to keep!

    Yeah, I'm with Nancy. Never shop on black Friday. It is too much and too many crazy shoppers.

    I usually shop for Christmas throughout the year. When I see something someone would like I pick it up then and store it until the big day

    I did the Friday after Thanksgiving thing once and vowed to NEVER do it again. I get tempted every year with the great advertised prices, but the people are what ruin it for me.

    Plus if the sale starts at 5am, that means all the good stuff is already going to be gone by the time I drag myself out of bed.

    I normally buy all of my brother's presents off Amazon.com and start around now so I can get all the stuff here in time with free shipping. For my parents it just all depends on when they say what they want. We normally start asking around Thanksgiving.

    As soon as possible, weve already started. Heck yeah we are going Friday. Everyone knows thats the day for bargains and for all the crazy people to come out of the woodworks. LOL

    I pick up a few things whenever I see them throughout the year, but most of it I do in December. I have done the super early Friday after Thanksgiving thing for several years, but this year I was on a farm and hour from any store. I go as early as they open, hit two or three stores, then go home and go back to bed until noon!
