On Black Friday, crazy people (like myself) go shopping all night long to snag deals.Some people don't like to participate in Black Friday because the crowds are so large. There have actually been instances of people being trampled to death. I've been fortunate in that every time I've gone shopping, people have behaved themselves. Yes, there were big crowds but they didn't try to knock me down and everyone was very polite. I've found Target to be the friendliest place to shop at. They had great organization and lots of employees offering to help you.
