Black Friday

It's Black Friday! Run!

Bottom Line
From Wikipedia,
"Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day ... The term dates back to at least 1966 [on the East Coast but] has become more common in other parts of the country since 2000. ... According to Reuters, in 2007 135 million people participated in the Black Friday shopping rush.
Many retailers open extremely early, with most of the retailers typically opening at 5AM or even ... as early as midnight ... Upon opening, retailers offer doorbuster deals and loss leaders to draw people to their stores. Black Friday, as the first shopping day after Thanksgiving, [serves] as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season"
Please don't get carried away...
