    Better than normal — with the masks on, the security cameras are going to have more difficulty identifying you.

    Why fistfight anyone? There’s a conjuring spell for all the plastic junk you’ll only use once and throw away so why waste time standing in line?

    Got to love the Wiz’s wisdom: “It’s all plastic junk we will only use once then throw away”! But, we (yes, we) will do it all over next year. If we didn’t, the U.S. economy would collapse. Happy Black Friday!

    “Plastic junk I’ll only use once and then throw away”. Like the packaging when you go to the grocery store?

    I’m waiting to see how long the American public takes to realize they could get all that stuff on line and not have to go through the madness of the stores.

    It’s not about the victory, it’s about the event. You don’t have to even throw a punch to be in a riot. All you have to do is be there.

    Fun fact: The day after Thanksgiving is “Buy Nothing Day”. So all these people are ignoring this sacred holiday.

    Another superspreader event, all over the country this time. Nothing could get me out there, not even pre-covid. The sales actually last several weeks and most items can be bought online, if you really do need them and are not out impulse buying. I waited for a few electronic items I need and will order them online over the week.

    How true and yet how sad. Only once have I ever gone to a Black Friday sale for a particular item. (This was the very early days of the internet and e-commerce was just starting.) So as I waited in line with everyone else for the item, I couldn’t believe how rude and abusive people could be to the store workers who were trying to fulfill the orders. I just left – said it’s not worth it.

    Is it that Black Friday makes normal people rude and inconsiderate, or is it that the nice people do not go Black Friday shopping?

    Use once??

    I have found 5-year-old purchases still in the bags with sales receipts, still waiting to be used the first time.

    I hear the jewelry and high-end purse stores in Chicago already had their discounted sales events – all you can smash and grab for free

    At least some stores (Macy’s among them) did not open ON Thanksgiving, and I’ve heard fewer advertised “door busters”, which seem to be asking for trouble.

    Whatever happened to common sense?  over 2 years ago

    There is no such day as “Black Friday.” It’s called the “day after Thanksgiving.” “Black Friday” is merely industry jargon that originated with the American department stores, from the old accounting term “in the black,” meaning turning a profit. (Accountants would enter profits in black ink in their ledger books, and losses in red ink.) Because a lot of people had the day off, the After-Thanksgiving Sales (also the proper term) brought in a lot of business, putting the stores “in the black.” So the name actually means “Profit Friday,” which is not what the holiday season is about.

    The holidays are not a time to shove and trample one another over some shoddy imported junk merchandise. This is the Thanksgiving weekend, a time to express gratitude and take some much-needed time off. The emphasis has shifted, and in the wrong direction. We are bombarded with this “Black Friday” garbage starting in October. The auto manufacturers use the term for their November “sales events” even though it has nothing to do with vehicles. You can’t watch TV, listen to the radio, read a newspaper or go online without hearing about this rubbish. It’s downright disgraceful that this has crossed the border into Canada, and even some European countries now have to deal with this nonsense.

    We need to take back our holidays. We can begin by removing “Black Friday” from the lexicon. If you live in the U.S., today is the day after Thanksgiving. If you live anywhere else, it’s just another day in November.
