We're guessing that the internet is brimming today with posts about how commercial Christmas is, how insane the marketing has become, and how you should sit around a nice warm fire all day knitting presents for your loved ones. But not here, my friends. Realistically, we know that sometimes a hard working spouse really needs an upgrade from his Gordon Gekko cell phone or a teenager could really use a computer of his own instead of having to borrow mom's all the time. And with the economy in the outhouse, saving a hundred bucks here or there could make a huge difference this season. So instead of admonishing the early bird Black Friday shoppers, we want to hear all about it!

So? Did you set the alarm for 4am this morning and hit the stores? Were they handing out free Red Bull and cranking in extra oxygen and Christmas carols to keep you going? Was it insane? Did you get what you needed? What did you buy?! And if you work in retail, we'd love to hear the inside stockroom scoop on the whole frenzy.
