Black Friday


Regular readers will remember that Black Friday is always one of my most despised days of the year-- a day dedicated to crowds, noise, excess and stress.

I already heard it once this morning, on the radio.  The broadcaster said Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year.  False!  It's actually the last Saturday before Christmas.  Although, this year, nothing is for certain.

Having said all that, the door of the penalty box swings open this year.  A good Black Friday could provide a much needed boost to the economy and get people working.  I do know many families who view Christmas shopping as a togetherness sport, and we can all use a little more of that.  And during this difficult time, no one can turn down a bargain.

Whatever you do today, do it safely.  Think of all the people working in retail.  Those are tough jobs-- even more so this year.

Good luck.
