Kicking off your holiday shopping on Black Friday? Memphis.About.com has the scoop. Their best tips?

Where To See Santa in Memphis
Kris Kringle has arrived in The Bluff City! And he’s not just popping up at your local mall. Pay him a visit among at Shelby Farms Park, or visit him at The Enchanted Forest, benefitting Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
A Wild Winter Wonderland
One of our favorite holiday attractions in Memphis is Zoo Lights at the Memphis Zoo. Ride the North Pole Express train, sip hot chocolate, and see snow, reindeer, holiday lights, singing Christmas trees and even Santa himself.
Find Your Inner Lumberjack
Your family will love choosing and cutting your own Christmas tree! Priddy Farms just outside Memphis in Germantown, TN offers cut-your-own trees, as well as pre-cut trees for the less adventurous. Or get crafty and take a wreath making class!
