Black Friday can certainly be some good materialistic fun when enjoyed in moderation. I always get a little excited when I see the electronics deals begin to tickle my inbox. Personally, I’ve always got my eye on TVs, internet tv connected devices, and tablets. But this year, there’s a new twist on this celebration of consumerism that I’m not sure I like.
I googled “Black Friday” in preparation for this blog post and immediately ran into one of the more important aspects of this year’s Black Friday event.
Black Friday is the name given to the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Apparently, “the day following Thanksgiving Day” was not soon enough for Walmart, and others, who decided to kick things off a little early this year.
