It’s Black Friday, a day that draws up images of people crushing through the doors of stores at 4 am to buy discount Christmas presents; stories of trampled shoppers and fisticuffs in the aisles. So, why would anyone do it when you could be sleeping off turkey and playing with the kids?
Some people just plain like to shop. Some people resell what they buy to make a buck. But honestly, for most of those dedicated shoppers it is because this is how they make Christmas happen; this is how they can make miracles out of their Christmas budgets.
So, decide for yourself if Black Friday is for you. And wether or not you decide to go out there, don’t judge the people that do. There is a reason they get up early on their day off and brave the stores, and that reason is probably asleep at home under an Elmo comforter.
