For the first time in my life, I tackled Black Friday shopping. I scanned the ads in advance, highlighted my items of choice, and made a game plan. Even though I was up bright and early, many of the products on my list were already sold out before I made it to the stores. Some of the shops around here opened at midnight, and almost all were open by 6:00 a.m. I now feel justified in listening to Christmas carols, since I’ve officially started my Christmas shopping.
Does anyone know why they call it Black Friday?
