    It is not a “holiday” it is a tribute to mass brainwashing!

      And a tribute to mass consumerism

    All it is designed to accomplish is for retail to get rid of inventory. It hasn’t had any positive results for small business because they can’t back the guarantees made by the larger retailers. Whenever I see these mobs waiting in line for hours for the latest gadget or people fighting and trampling one another for scraps I wonder to myself how I managed to never buy into all this crap. Maybe I should just be thankful i’m not one of the herd and leave it at that.

    This cartoon is kind of stupid! “Black Friday” is the day after Thanksgiving, and is NOT on “Good Friday,” the day commemorating the crucifixion. The 2 have nothing to do with each other.

    It’s definitely a capitalistic holiday.. as well as the days leading up to it (and of course the ‘cyber’ Monday afterwards).

    I fail to see the connection between “Black Friday” and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ although it is possible that the figure on the cross is actually depicting “common sense”. I do recall the one time that I partook of the “Black Friday” festivities (when I first heard the term I thought it would have something to do with a coven and I was looking forward to the nude dancing). My daughter wanted to go shopping (she always gets up at 5 AM) and I decided to go along since I had not gotten around to going to bed yet. It was very interesting and my daughter was able to find a pair of socks. I also find it interesting that “Black Friday” has expanded this year to start at 8 PM Wednesday at some stores.
