Blackest of Fridays

Did a little Black Friday shopping today, but no midnight browsing or line waiting.  It helps that we don’t really need any big purchases right now, but it also seems like it’s not worth the stress.  And if you think about it, it’s a bit wrong, too.  Big screen televisions – the biggest allure of Black Friday sales – nobody buys those for other people.  The best you do is rationalize that it’s a gift “for the entire family,” but it’s really for yourself.  But Black Friday is the start of the Christmas shopping season (or at least, it used to be).  Technically, you’re supposed to be buying gifts for other people!
