Black Friday is upon us once again. For any non-Americans who may be confused, the day after our Thanksgiving is the “official” start to the holiday shopping season. Stores open at absurd hours and offer huge discounts, and customers line up in the freezing cold to be the first ones to stampede through the doors to score the best deals. Supposedly it’s named after the fact that stores earn enough by that day to cover their expenses for the year, and therefore everything earned after that is pure profit (putting them in “the black”), but if you’ve ever worked retail you probably have a much different interpretation!
So how are you spending your Black Friday? Sleeping off a turkey coma? Shopping ’til you drop? Working? Hiding from the outside world because rabid Black Friday shoppers scare you? Thanking your lucky stars you live elsewhere and don’t have to deal with this crap? Sound off in the comments below. Or tell us about your Thanksgiving!
