I'm posting this to promote irresponsible spending during the holiday season.

(the following is from About.com)

Definition:
The day after Thanksgiving in the United States, is frequently referred to as Black Friday.

General Use: One of the major U.S. holiday shopping days. The day many U.S. consumers begin Christmas shopping. The day is heavily promoted by retailers.

Origin: The origin of Black Friday comes from the shift to profitability during the holiday season. Black Friday was when retailers went from being unprofitable, or "in the red," to being profitable, or "in the black", at a time when accounting records were kept by hand and red indicated loss and black profit.

    The best thing about Christmas is the food and booze :) The pressies I can do without, but Christmas isnt Christmas if you don't get drunk and feel like you are gonna explode after lunch LOL

    I went shopping ONCE on Black Friday and never will again. I am so short I guess the "people" could not see me. Yes, I was trampled and things were snatched out of my hands. Never again...

    paul & kfarmer - I agree with you. Over the years the Christmas hols have lost it's intent. The rampant consumerism as overtaken the fellowship of the season.
