Black Friday

I don't know about you, but I would never go shopping today.  The second to last thing I want to do is shop and the last thing I want to do is shop in crowds.  Do you think the sales worth it? I don't, and apparently neither does the Wall Street Journal:

The Myth of the Black Friday deal.


Also known as Buy Nothing Day was started in Canada in 1992 as a protest against consumerism and over-consumption.  It was moved to the day after Thanksgiving in 1998.  Perhaps they're right, last year 141 million of us went shopping on this day and spent $57.4 Billion dollars. What are you going to do today, shop? Or something else.  Me? I'm going to kick back and enjoy the day off.
