Did you partake in Black Friday, Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday this year? Why or why not?

Adonis Nyabogna, Landover, Maryland I didn't Black Friday shop, because I shop year-round and whatever I need, I will get it when I'm ready. I don't like the huge crowds and fighting over stuff, it's not that serious.Kenya Nelson, Washington, D.C. I did a little bit of shopping, but not much because bills are real and Christmas is coming.Shemeka Wright, Boston I definitely Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopped and got a pot set, pillows and other things that I needed from Wal-Mart for great prices. You can't beat the deals, especially when it's things that you need.Theresa Oliphant, Charlotte, North Carolina No, I didn't participate in Black Friday or Cyber Monday, because I feel that in my older age, there is more to me than just shopping. I used to be a big Black Friday shopper, but it's just not something that I'm interested in anymore. Plus, things are so dangerous now. I prefer to online shop anyway, but it doesn't necessarily have to be on Cyber Monday.Vicente Massey, Washington, D.C. I did not participate in [any] of it. Due to financial obligations, I wasn't able to participate. I never do, actually. I don't see the point. It's a deal, but if you save for what you want, you can get it anytime. It's a ploy.
