Black Friday Delight!

You know we love the JCPenney snow globes. Each year on Black Friday, an employee hands these out to their first customers of the day and that has traditionally been out first stop on our shopping trip.  Last year, we were so disappointed when the snow globes were not a part of Black Friday. Sometime this fall, we found out that the snow globes would be back!  Christine and I immediately planned our Black Friday shopping around this event that we have come to love.  Who wouldn't get excited about a Disney snow globe that is FREE?

2012 and 2013!
While standing in line this morning, we found out that there were snow globes last year.  However, they were not given out on Black Friday and there were only a small amount made for distribution. Some very loyal JCPenney customers received cards in the mail and could pick up their snow globe at their local store. Luckily for us, we were early in line this year and there just happened to be a box with about 14 of the 2012 models! Score! So excited to receive both of these little beauties today! Thank you JC Penney for bringing back a wonderful tradition!


What are you doing on Black Friday?  Did you shop on Thanksgiving?

  1. So glad you got your globes! We typically go pay a visit to Santa on Black Friday and that's it. I hate shopping and I can't stand crowds, busy parking lots or pretty much all the things related, so I just stay home. We do most of our shopping online, anyway. If there's a really tremendous deal for something we really need, I could see braving the insanity, but... it just hasn't really happened yet. Enjoy the rest of the day!

    1. Jennifer, you are so smart. Avoiding Black Friday is a brilliant move. I must admit though, we got the snow globes and came home and the mall is less than a mile from C's house. So...easy and then back to bed. We then went out a round 7:30 and all the major stores still had their big ticket items. And JC Penney was still giving out the snow globes!

  2. That is so cool that you got a snow globe from last year too! No shopping for us. We traditionally use this day to decorate and wrap some gifts that we already bought!

  4. Those are pretty cute. There's not enough motivation in the world to get me to try to get to a store on Black Friday. I'll get up in the dark for a race, but not to go to a store...even for a smiling mouse!
