It happens every year. In an effort to up the ante and oust the competition, retailers bump up their hours, turning Thanksgiving and Black Friday into one big holiday shopping frenzy.

Some people complain about retail employees having to miss Thanksgiving dinner and others zip up their coats, jump in their cars and venture into the bargain-filled chaos.
