    Shoppers Camped Out A Week Before Black Friday


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Marjaani told me she interviewed a group of Black Friday campers near where she lives and was surprised to find they almost had a secret society all their own, and they had been there since the weekend. To make it that long, the camper group members would take turns to give each other a break. "It's kind of like a competition with them. Whoever is first in line gets the better deals. That kind of surprised me. Every year this group has a competition to be the first one there." Do you see Black Friday hysteria around you? Send us your photos and videos.

    Last night coming back from a late dinner, my daughters and I passed by this Best Buy retailer and notice long lines and tents. Since, I had my camera with me, I decided to take some pictures and interview the crowd. This group was the politest and kindest group you will meet. Not the typical Black Friday group, so often portrayed in the media. This is my interview.
