Black Friday is an informal name for the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, the fourth Thursday of November, which has been regarded as the beginning of the country’s Christmas shopping season since 1952.

Given the choice between pushing, shoving, and scrambling for Black Friday super sales, I decided to stay away from the stores.

Personally, I celebrate Black Friday EVERY Friday. It’s called Black Russian Friday. I saved a lot of money and enjoyed the day.

Just a few fond Friday memories. My kinda Black Friday… CHEERS!

Forget Black Friday:) It’s Black Russian Friday

Black Friday: Because only in America, people trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have. ~Unknown quotes

It’s true, after contemplating about all the things I have to be thankful for yesterday, I had trouble thinking that I needed to get in my car and go shopping. I’ll admit, I was tempted by all the online bargains that filled my email inbox this morning. As tempting as they were, I refrained from making any purchases. I could use a new pair of walking shoes, as mine are more then well worn and falling apart. But, I can wait. Now, is that self control, or what?

Instead, I had a leisurely morning, a long walk, a nice lunch of leftovers, visited my neighbor’s cat while she was out of town, checked on Bella, my doggie buddy after Mr. Mike had to take her for an emergency vet visit, then an evening stroll, capturing the sunset. These are the things that make me happier than Black Friday sales. 

The best part though is…IT’S BLACK RUSSIAN BLACK FRIDAY! Cheers!

 


Amazing evening sky. This beats any shopping spree.
