LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — As Thanksgiving dinners wrapped up many shoppers headed to the mall for Black Friday.

The beginning of the Christmas shopping season began as early as 5 p.m. in some area stores.

It's known as the busiest shopping day across the U.S.

Many shoppers want to get a jump on their holiday spending by taking advantage of any deals or sales.

News 18 talked to shoppers who didn't care how long the lines were.

Many were out for the experience and tradition.

Some just said Black Friday is crazy.

"Definitely, but the holiday spirit is going around," said Hayden Baer. "We're all getting gifts and that's a happy time, but sometimes it doesn't end up that way. It definitely is exciting getting all this stuff and sometimes it can get a little crazy."

"It's just a little hectic. I was kind of reluctant on going out but it was cheap," said Cade Pierce.

The Tippecanoe Mall opened at 5 p.m. Thursday and closed at 1 a.m.
