I love the holidays. I don't love shopping the malls! If you do, then don't forget about Black Friday--the Friday after Thanksgiving. For retailers it signals the start of holiday shopping. Ever wonder how Black Friday began? In 1939 President Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving up a week to extend the shopping season to help retail businesses. It was first called Black Friday in the 1960s and the term comes from the accounting practice of using red ink for losses and black ink for profits. To find the Black Friday bargains go to www.bfads.net and www.blackfriday.gottadeal.com.
As for me, I'm avoiding the malls and going online. I'm scouting out what I want now at www.cybermonday.com and www.bestcybermondaysales.com and then come Cyber Monday (the Monday following Black Friday, this year December 1st) I'll be hitting cyberspace!
