Thanksgiving is a holiday known for delicious food, great friends, football and of course, family. After a long day of preparing a large meal, some individuals pack it in for the night and set their alarms for the early morning hours in hopes of scoring the best Black Friday deals!

Black Friday is always on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Stores open earlier than ever and slash prices, give away gifts and bring in a whole lot of money! In 2011, 226 million individuals participated in Black Friday shopping. That number grew in 2012 to a whopping 247 million individuals.

In 2011, the average amount spent per individual on Black Friday was $398 totaling 52.4 billion dollars! Again, those numbers grew in 2012 with customers spending on average, $423 that totaled over 59 billion dollars!
