Stay Home Next Week

We won’t be posting about Black Friday sales on our site, mostly because we think it’s insane to wait hours in the cold hoping for the slim chance that you’ll get one of five flatscreen TVs marked down to $10 or whatever, and also because I think it’s terrible that Black Friday has now extended into Thanksgiving Day, forcing retail workers like the ones at Target to give up their Thanksgivings and go to work hoping they won’t get trampled by a horde of shoppers in return for earning time and a half on their minimum wage pay. Stay home, eat plates of food and take naps. There will be plenty of time for shopping and many deals to be had in stores and online every day leading up to Chrismukkah.
