    I never go near any retail establishments on that day. Too busy with other things, like living my life.

    Demon sheep!

    I can’t remember, but is this the first yr. that every fuggin’ advertiser has been calling it “Black Friday?” Shouldn’t they at least call it “In the Black Friday?”


    Definition of ‘Black Friday’
    1. A day of stock market catastrophe. Originally, September 24, 1869, was deemed Black Friday. The crash was sparked by gold speculators, including Jay Gould and James Fist, who attempted to corner the gold market. The attempt failed and the gold market collapsed, causing the stock market to plummet.

    @Techie: o what, put sheep in a feed lot before slaughtering the buggers por go shopping on Friday? Yes to the first, no to the second…they have lives there.


  11. Some Techie says:

    Reamus, just wondering if this is a US media/corporate-driven frenzy or something that occurs in other countries as well.

    Black Friday is extreme shopping, or consumerism as a blood sport.

    From what I can learn, Black Friday started in America and, so far, has only recently crossed the border, mostly to big American chains operating in Canada.

    In some locals, Black Friday (and American store employee’s objections) has fueled a debate about holiday sales destroying the holidays, with such extreme remedies as government enforced regulations for holiday store closings being suggested.

    I doubt it will come to much. A recent Harris/Decima poll discovered that 8% of Canadians planned to take advantage of Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday sales, 7% were considering doing so, and about 84% of Canadians simply aren’t interested.

    Note: Thanksgiving in Canada is in October, but the American Thanksgiving weekend is always the date of the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup game and somewhat of an unofficial holiday.
