In the United States, the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday. Retailers kick off the holiday season by having special One Day Only sales with VERY discounted prices to entice shoppers to do their holiday shopping early. It’s called “Black Friday” because supposedly enough money can be made in that one day to put the company in the ‘black’ (meaning profitable) for the entire year. The retailers have taken this tradition and REALLY exploited it, opening at 4 & 5 AM. This year the greedy retailers are now having Black Friday sales ON Thanksgiving night thereby exploiting the holiday itself in my opinion. Is nothing scared any more? I will definitely NOT be one of the people waiting in a ridiculously long line to save $5 on a DVD. That said, I am posting some of the fabulous online sales on beauty items you might want to take advantage of. THAT I will be participating in!
