Five Montana Things I’d Rather Do Than Shop on Black Friday

My wife asked me the other day if I wanted to go Black Friday shopping with her and a couple of the kids this year. I looked at her like she lost her ever-loving mind and started laughing. “Why would I want to do that?”, I asked incredulously. She knows I don’t particularly enjoy shopping or crowds and getting up in the wee hours of the morning to do both of those things ranks near the very bottom on the “things I want to do on a holiday” list.

I’ve always been turned off by the annual news footage of people trampling each other to get cheap electronics and other junk on Black Friday. I get it… you can save some money. But the images of people being completely selfish and rude as they push and jostle for bargains seem to pretty much defeat the spirit of Christmas. Here are five things I’d rather be doing on Black Friday.
