Some say stores that don't open up on Thanksgiving are losing some serious money. Others admire these stores for giving workers time to spend with their family.

Isn't that what it should be about anyway? I have seen a few people get tased during Black Friday and I have never really looked at this day in a positive light again. I am fine looking for other deals, when the crowds have calmed down. I rather spend time with my family and cats, getting fat and full of delicious eats.
