I get a kick out of this day "Black Friday" it sounds like the anniversary of some tragic event.
Well maybe that isn't too far off base. Check out this entry from wikipedia. And no, I will NOT be shopping today.

Quote :

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, where it is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season. Since Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday may be as early as the 23rd and as late as the 29th of November. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many employers give the day off, allowing consumers to get a head start on their Christmas shopping. Retailers often decorate for the Christmas season weeks beforehand. Many retailers open very early (typically 5am) and offer doorbuster deals and loss leaders to draw people to their stores. Although Black Friday, as the first shopping day after Thanksgiving, has served as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season at least since the start of the modern Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1924, the term "Black Friday" has been traced back only to the 1970s. "Black Friday" was originally so named because of the heavy traffic on that day, although most contemporary uses of the term refer instead to it as the beginning of the period in which retailers are in the black (i.e., turning a profit).

WE left out about 10 this morning and just got home about 7 PM. We hit a lot of stores, but we didn't really buy a lot. Most of my Christmas shopping is for my wife, and it's really hard to shop for her with her with me!

For most of my Christmas shopping, I'm doing that online and having the stuff shipped to the house. No crowds, no long lines, no screaming children!!! OK, you don't get some of the sales, but there are plenty of websites offering promo codes for your favorite online stores.

I don't go shopping on Black Friday.

I was drywalling ("mudding") a couple rooms at the church today.

We didn't have to. We just did. You spend a lot of time waiting in lines to check out, driving from store to store, searching for decent parking spaces, etc. There is a lot more waiting than shopping to be done.

Me and my 2 brothers have been saying that exact line since the 70s when we sat around watching the 3 stooges and Curly said that line. We were die-hard Stooge fans and got all episodes pretty much memorized.
Geniuses before their time.

It takes more time to find the store to buy what you need.
Hummmmm parking, that's a big problem here too.
Here it's very busy in the store the weekend and the week before we celebrate Sinterklaas.
The stores are open till 9 pm then
Before Christmas it's busy in the stores too.

Some of those people camped out overnight. People are just nuts when it comes to these sales.
