Here’s a great excuse to eat Thanksgiving dinner with your family and then get the heck out of there before they start asking why you have no girlfriend, no kids, are not married and everything that’s wrong with you!

Just say: “I’d love to stay, but I’ve got to get to Wal-Mart right now to buy a $19 Blu-ray player.”

Black Friday is starting earlier than ever this year… fewer and fewer retailers are waiting until 5:00 A.M. on the Friday after Thanksgiving to open their doors.

Wal-Mart has announced it will be starting its Black Friday sale at midnight on Thanksgiving night. And they’re not alone. Old Navy and The Gap are starting at midnight too.

Toys “R” Us is beating them by two hours; they’ll open at 10:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving and start offering their deals.

Sears and Kmart are trying to get the jump on everyone; they’ll be opening and offering their best sale offers at 6:00 A.M. on Thanksgiving morning.

For now, Target is still set to open at 4:00 A.M. on Black Friday, Best Buy is set to open at 5:00 A.M., and Costco isn’t planning to join in until 9:00 A.M.

But there’s a major price war going this holiday season, as these stores are desperately competing to grab your gift budget… however small it is in this economy.
