So...has anyone been out shopping all night..? Did you get up early to shop today? I personally have never understood this ritual..and even though I have participated in the past at the urging of friendsm family or SO's ...I am not sure it's something I would want to repeat.

Interesting article in the Guardian...it seems that "black Friday" madness is limited to US shoppers.
