Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving day in US, when Christmas shopping begins.
While many worry about how to cook the big bird, others have something different in mind: to get the best spot in line for the Black Friday sale. Some people skip Thanksgiving to camp outside the store, others move their party to the campsite in the overnight waiting line.
Stores open very early in the morning. At 5am, the final wait can be quite exciting.
There are lots of good deals and the excitement of shopping is not damped by early morning sleepiness.
The search for bargains continues even in the long wait for checking out.
All the excitement and gift buying is a reminder that holidays are coming soon.
