Normally there is a wonderful author in this space on a Friday, but since it's Black Friday I thought too many people would be either shopping or recovering from the day with family. So no author today.
But If you feel inclined, you can tell me what you do on this day, and if you think the best shopping deals really are on Black Friday.
I'll get us started, I NEVER go shopping on this day! People are nutty enough on other days, but the sheer terror of shopping with someone who either stayed up all night, or stood in line for hours waiting for the store to open keeps me home, relaxing and knowing I can shop for great deals on a less frenzied day.
Let the holidays begin!
