Black Friday is one thing. But the concept of Black Thursday has many consumers choking on their stuffing.

Several D.C.-area department stores and malls -- most recently, Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax County -- have said they will open their doors on Thanksgiving night as part of the frenzied rush of deals and discounts that ushers in the Christmas season.

We asked our users, and a whopping 89 percent of those surveyed said they would not shop on Thanksgiving. (We'll see. The malls expect crowds.)

Some stores are holdouts: Nordstrom posted a sign in its window this week that said it would not open on Thanksgiving or even decorate their stores before Turkey Day. "We just like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time," the notice reads.

So, before you dig in to the dressing and gravy, here's your guide to Maryland and Virginia malls and their hours on Thanksgiving and Black Friday:
