Crazy, pushy, and long lines. That's how veteran Black Friday shopper Ruth Gyman describes shopping the day after Thanksgiving.
"Usually it's really crazy. People are like pushy and you know they want to get what they want. And you know it's long lines," said Ruth Gyman.
Black Friday is one of those odd holiday traditions, but something many gear up for year after year.
And everyone has that one thing on their list that they're after, from a Christmas tree to the dancing Mickey to electronics.
And it's those Black Friday deals that brought people out to fight the crowds.
"Well, when you see those deals, you see how much you're going to save, it's either jump get it or otherwise miss out," said Tom Troge from Ashford.
Gyman set up camp at Target around noon thinking there would already be a long line of people outside the doors.
But to her surprise, she was the first in line.
"I'm shocked, but the again the ads aren't as big and grand as they usual are. So I'm guessing that's keeping people back."
Another difference this year, many stores are changing up Black Friday. It's now more like Black Thursday!
Stores like Toys-R-Us and Target opening on Thanksgiving night. And opening the doors early actually led to less of a rush to get through the doors.
"Best part about it was standing in line, I think. But whenever they take away this, you know, the excitement of standing in line to get in, it's not going to be that much fun," said Debbie Taylor of Clendenin.
But still the Black Friday shoppers will to shop until they drop.
"I think I'm going to sit this one out for next year. But this year, I'm in it to win it," said Troge.
