Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the US (the fourth Thursday of November). It has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early and offer promotional sales. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and some other states observe "The Day After Thanksgiving" as a holiday for state government employees. Many non-retail employees and schools have both Thanksgiving and the following Friday off, which, along with the following regular weekend, makes it a four-day weekend, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005,3 and news reports have described it as the busiest shopping day of the year.Stories resurface year after year at this time, portraying hysteria and stock, creating a state of positive feedback.
So if you are one of these shoppers, be careful and cautious today, and happy shopping.
Buy lots of things and buy them cheaply.
Thanks for stopping in and visiting. Have great holidays everyone. Love, Mary
