Black Friday

Black Friday. When people think of Black Friday they think of shopping. They think of that fantastic buy for their loved one. The one item they would not usually be able to afford. I understand because I am on a budget myself.

But when I think of Black Friday, I don't think of shopping till I drop. I think about the people that were hurt during the sales at Black Friday last year and the years before. I think of those people that got trampled by other shoppers and died. Maybe I am strange but I believe Americans should stand up and say "No More Black Friday Shopping". Someone dying so that a shopper can get that gift they think is so important does not make since to me.

Maybe we all should re-think what Christmas is all about. What do you think?

That sounds like a plan to me!! I hate black Friday. Refuse to shop that day. I figure I can get it full price, tell my kids they can't have everything they want, or find it at a garage sale a year or two down the road... but I'm sleeping in! ha! People get too obsessed and too crazy.
