ivy- Balck Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and is the biggest shopping day of the year. Stores open early (anywhere from midnight to 4am) and have great deals. Some people wait in line hours for stores to open. My sister, neice and I just got up early and went to Walmart cause there was a sweeper I wanted. We had fun! It was crazy to see how many people there were. There are some diehard shoppers out there!
