Do you have that day off or do you take a vacation day?

Do you go shopping?

If you have to work do you go shopping early before going into work?

Its a training day... which means I count all those hours I work normally and never charge. My office is closed for the day (and so is daycare).

We wont go shopping unless there is some fantasticly cant pass up deal. I dont really like the crowds and such, plus I do most of my shopping beforehand.

I don't usually work it, but there's always the possibility I can be scheduled to. I've only gotten up early and gone shopping once on Black Friday. It was a nightmare! I'd much rather sit in the comfort of my own home and find good deals online.

I'm not working that day, but I don't usually shop either. I think I did a bit of shopping on Thanksgiving day last year since some stores were open. I'll probably mostly be looking for online deals this year.

I don't work that day, the office is closed and yes I participate in all the black Friday sales. I love Black Friday. Normally I wake up start at 4am and finish by lunch time. Then we all go out to lunch that day together. Its really fun and exhausting!!

It's not considered a holiday for us so I have to use my annual leave. I always take the day off but I never go shopping. I don't like shopping anyway, let alone on black Friday. I would get so annoyed and stressed out with the crowds.

Ditto. I don't enjoy shopping in B&M stores but I do love the online deals!
