The day following American Thanksgiving holds little significance for most people worldwide, but for US residents -- and now even many Canadians -- Black Friday, as it is referred to, marks the first day of chaotic holiday shopping, shown in the 'Crazy for Black Friday Deals' infographic.
Created by BlackFriday2011.com, a site devoted to keeping track of all the day's best deals, the illustrated chart tracks buyer habits from around the nation. It comes as no surprise that New York and Los Angeles top the list of top Black Friday-buying cities, but, in terms of shopping around for the best deals, states in the midwest take the crown.
If you're not a fan of crowds and line-ups, you might want to steer clear of any department stores and major retailers on Black Friday -- but, if you insist on camping out early for the best buys, check out this 'Crazy for Black Friday' infographic for a few tips!
