I don't completely understand it, but this holiday ritual is one that some people live for - Black Friday shopping! I have relatives that actually camp out at Best Buy every year to be sure they are at the front of the line for the big deals. Me and my wife normally get up early, but don't necessarily worry about trying to be first in line. Last year we actually got our teenage daughters up out of bed before dawn to brave the stores with us. One of my daughters actually witnessed a fist fight over a crate of toys that was shrink wrapped in the middle of the isle. Some items don't go on sale until a specific time and the people were supposed to be waiting for an associate to come open the display and begin handing out the items. Some shoppers couldn't wait and began to tear open the shrink wrap themselves. Way to get in the holiday spirit!

    Target, like Walmart, has just a little bit of everything from electronics to clothes to home decor. Target can be a little bit pricey, but with all of the discounts it should be worth getting up so early!
