I'm almost embarrassed to tell you all this (but not that embarrassed cause I think you all have gotten a feel for me). One year (I won't tell you how old I was because it'll make me sound even more stupid! But I was definitely over 20!) I made a comment about it being a bummer that Thanksgiving was on a Thursday that year because we wouldn't have a long weekend. Needless to say...that is how I aquired the nickname "airhead" and don't believe that particular group of people will ever let me live that one down icon_whistling

LOL! That was funny Cathy! Ya know, I'm not even sure if I even remember why it is always on a Thursday, I know....I really should know that! :sl*p:

And a very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!! And thanks for thinking of us!!

Thanks everyone for the Thanksgiving wishes.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and .... Claire, :thnku: for thinking of us.

Don't worry too much about saying it a day early .... I'd say it is a safe bet that most of us are already a bit in long weekend mode. :-) Most of us in the US will also be off on Friday. :-) (Cathy, I hope you are ...)

Happy Thanksgiving to all! :flwr:

So, who is going to be a lunatic like I am and hit the mall on Friday morning? :lol:

22nd November 2006, 02:54 PM
when is it?

What exactly do you do?

22nd November 2006, 02:58 PM
Are you asking about what happens on Friday?

Every store in America (practically) has an after Thanksgiving sale. Everyone buys their Christmas gifts and it is a madhouse at major malls and stores! You can hardly move!

I would be smart just to stay home with my pups, but my mother is dragging me out in the mess :sl*p:

No way am I joining the madness the day after! Too crazy for me.

Claire - just try to keep me off the board on Thursday :D I work from home and will be working Thursday a.m. and on Friday. Bummer. But I had a long weekend at the mountains and have to make up for it. It was worth it!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! I am one of those lunatics that will be at the malls at 5 AM on Friday morning. My 14 year old goes with me and we make a day of it and have a blast!!! We shop, eat breakfast, shop more, do lunch shop more and more and more............................. :yikes

I don't know if it's known like this all over the US, but tomorrow is actually called "black friday". Not sure where that name came from, but most all stores have insane sales and the earlier you can get there, the more you save. There are stores here in Memphis that are opening at Midnight tonight.

I have never shopped on black friday because I am not a crowd person and it is NUTS around the malls, but I have family that goes (starting at 3am) and they claim to save tons of money on Christmas gifts!!!

Thanks so much for all the Thanksgiving wishes!!! :D
