Black Friday Traditions

Happy Black Friday! Do you usually go out shopping today? I've never been a black Friday shopper...I prefer to shop in my jammies from the comfort of my couch. Did you score any awesome deals today? Let me know what you got!

In our family, it's our tradition to get our Christmas tree and decorate it the day after Thanksgiving. But today, my husband had to help his parents move.....so instead, my mom and I are listening to Christmas music with the kids and enjoying a yummy Hickory Farms sausage and cheese spread! We'll get our tree tomorrow (hopefully)!

Seriously so yummy! It's not the holidays unless you see Hickory Farms set up at your local mall. Am I right? Hickory Farms is America’s most famous holiday food gift brand, enjoyed by holiday shoppers seeking the perfect gifts for family and friends for over 60 years.

I'm thinking that enjoying some sausage and cheese will become a new holiday tradition. Hickory Farms’ food gifts are available at Holiday Market locations nationwide, their website, and at leading retailers.

While we are enjoying our sausage and cheese we are also plotting my Elf on a Shelf strategy! This is the first year we've had an elf and I think Hudson is going to get a huge kick out of hunting around for our elf. If you have any easy and fun ideas let me know! I found some great ideas here...but the elf being held hostage might be my favorite.

  1. My grandma used to work at the Hickory Farms stand in the mall every Christmas. Whenever I see their products, I think of her. We're putting out tree up tonight too! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  11. No Black Friday shopping here! Online is the way to go (hey, Amazon prime!).
    Our elf first arrived last year, so he's pretty new to the whole hiding game. It was funny when he decided to hang out in the fridge because the cooler temps reminded him of his home at the North Pole. ;)

  12. Hahaha! That Elf set-up is so cute! I think we're going to do the Elf thing this year too. I need something to get Mac to nice to his sister and share and I'm totally not above manipulation.

  19. I didn't really hit up any great black friday deals...we just stayed home! And I haven't done Elf on the shelf (man, lamest comment from me ever!), but we're planning on starting next year.

  20. I was mad that Home Depot didn't put their kissing balls on sale for Black Friday so I went to AC Moore and decided to make my own!

    No kids yet (one on the way) but I know my husband will be the best elf on the shelf-er ever. We have one for when his nieces come over and he is ridiculous!
