Will You Shop on Black Friday?

Will You Shop on Black Friday?

Leave it to us. On the least-commercial holiday of the year, the one about family and gratitude, many people can hardly wait to get the guests out the door in order to rest up before the real fun begins: shopping. We can only hope that in the future, Thanksgiving won’t become known as Black Friday Eve.

Black Friday is a day of early store openings and deep discounts…and pushing, jabbing, stampeding crowds. Bargain, injuries and fatalities may ensue! Some people quite literally shop till they drop. Many towns are imposing strict regulations upon retailers, but it seems to reason that will only send shoppers to a neighboring village for their pillage.

What’s the draw? Will you be braving the masses? Leave a comment about why you will or won’t be shopping on Black Friday.
