Every year my aunt and I attempt to face the craziness of Black Friday shopping, and each year we get more annoyed than the year before. Women who fight over 25 percent-off handbags and being pushed and shoved by shoppers makes us cringe. We always seem to laugh at ourselves by the end of the day for suffering through the madness. Although some say it’s not worth it, we do end up having a lot of fun and usually end up with good deals on Christmas presents!

On Black Friday, myself and a small group of my family members always get some bargains and sift through the crowds at Kohl’s. We’re not too crazy, though; we normally set out at around 10 in the morning.

I can barely move on Black Friday because of all the food I ate the day before; I think I’ll pass on getting trampled by someone for a pair of shoes.
