Well usually we go down to my wifes parents in the morning, then my grandmothers house in the evening. This year it's all out of whack though. With a couple family members relocated for jobs, and my younger brother stationed several states away; we're doing thanksgiving the day before at my grandmothers house, fairly late- then my wifes parents the morning after. Then we're headed down to the lake until Saturday to enjoy a couple days off! Believe it or not, I usually go out early morning on Black Friday because I like to people watch and I love to watch the crazies. I also love to watch how clueless people are. Wal-Mart had some 42" TV's for like $150 a couple years ago so I grabbed one. Saw lines wrapped around aisles extending all the way to the back of the store, people saying they had already spent hours in line. Including a little old lady with all of her groceries in her cart, LOL. So I strolled back to the electronics counter and a bored looking kid checked me out. No line. Got my receipt and headed on out the door. LOL.
Rarely ever actually 'shop' on black friday. Many of the deals really aren't as good as you'd think. Often it's one-off chinese crap, or stuff you can get for that price online any day you want. But I love watching people and it's so fun to see how nuts people get over a $10 savings on an XBox. Also, most of it is still there days later. Last year, when my little brother moved off base into his own apartment, my wife and I went 2 or 3 days after black friday and saw they still had pallet after pallet of GE appliances they had for uber cheap on black friday. We got him a toaster, blender, microwave, coffee maker, waffle iron, etc., all really cheap.
