Opposed to shopping on Thanksgiving Day, Betty Allen of West Friendship waited until midnight to head to Walmart in Ellicott City for $2 DVDs and then shopped through the night without crowds to buy boots and clothing for her four children with stops at Kohl's, Target, Macy's and J.C. Penney. "It has been different this year," said Allen. "I'm used to lining up outside and rushing in. " Black Friday, the traditional kickoff to the holiday retail season, drew smaller-than-usual hordes of bargain hunters in the Baltimore area, probably because earlier Thanksgiving sales and staggered "limited supply" discounts spread shoppers out. Some shoppers missed the frenzy, while others embraced the relative calm.

On a day that is supposed to bring families together, this dish has a tendency to push them apart. I am talking about cranberries, those tart little berries that everyone feels obligated to serve in some form on Thanksgiving Day. I have nothing against cranberries. I like them, as long as they're fixed the "right way." That means with fresh horseradish, grated ginger, minced garlic and a can of cranberry jelly. This produces a chutney that has zest, fruit and presence.

As retailers prepare for the traditional start of the holiday season this coming week, some of the nation's biggest chains plan to pre-empt Black Friday with shopping hours and special events on Thanksgiving Day — a move that has triggered a spate of online protests. Toys "R" Us will open stores at 9 p.m. and Walmart will follow at 10 p.m., meaning that shoppers may be lining up for bargains soon after their turkey dinners. Target, Best Buy and Kohl's are shifting from their usual pre-dawn Friday openings, welcoming shoppers at midnight.
