I’ll be honest, I’ve never understood the whole appeal of Black Friday. While shoppers across the nation are waiting outside stores at 4AM, I’m usually still passed out after stuffing 4,000 calories of turkey and cranberry sauce down my gullet the day before. Call me crazy, but I’d rather sleep in and not get shanked by someone else’s mom while trying to save $50 on an iPad.

That being said!
