Much of those doorbusters are cheaper made products. Many years ago, my daughter and I went a couple years in a row to Black Friday events. We never got anything worth getting out of bed for at that hour.I used to do Black Friday shopping, but the past few years are only electronic deals. I never buy electronics. Haven't even thought about Christmas yet. Won't till Thanksgiving.
I have purchased Christmas cards many years. I think I got them sent out maybe once?Christmas card and gift list made. Starting cards today. Only bought gifts are for DH and we only do trinkets from thrift stores. All gifts are baked goods and nothing done yet on that front. I do decorate in early November as I do it all myself and get too busy later on. I am one who takes it down Christmas Day or the day after at the latest. When it's over, it's over!
