While she spends a lot of time with family during the holidays, she confesses that there is just one tradition she stays far away from after having a horrible experience as a child.

Carrie Underwood, husband Mike Fisher, and their bundle of joy, Isaiah Fisher, will likely be getting together with loved ones for this holiday season and celebrating all that they’re thankful for on the upcoming turkey day, but as the country superstar explained recently – there is just one tradition that she refuses to partake in.

In a new interview with iHeart Radio, Underwood confesses that, as a child, she and her mother would often spend time together doing various things for the holidays, and joining in on several traditions, but when they began to go shopping on Black Friday, she says that it became very uncomfortable for her.

“I do not do crowds. Never have,” She explains on the radio show. “Mom and I would go to like Walmart on some big sale or Black Friday or whatever when I was younger, and I’d have to leave the store because I would hyperventilate and need to get out.”

Truly, the whole ‘Black Friday’ shopping experience has had some horrific events stem from it, including several in which people died from related accidents and injuries. There’s no wonder why she would opt to stay far away from it.

Just in 2015 alone, Black Friday shoppers totaled more than 151 million in the U.S. alone, however unlike many believe – it is not the busiest shopping day of the year! The busiest shopping day of the year is the Saturday that falls before Christmas Day and is called “Super Saturday”.

Carrie Underwood might be steering clear of Black Friday shopping at all costs, but that’s not the only thing she might be steering clear from!

Last year, Underwood tried her hand at baking one of the best Thanksgiving favorites: pumpkin pie! But, Underwood’s attempt wasn’t as successful as she would have like it to be.

In a photo posted to her Instagram account, Underwood shared with fans the result of her hard work, which she summed up as “pumpkin failure” and poked fun at having it for leftovers with ice cream!

On tomorrow’s menu…pumpkin failure a la mode. #thanksgivingfail #sad #nodessert #smokedetector #ineedanewoven
