Friday Fun! Black Friday Madness...
You have to love our American friends and their wonderful traditions. Especially the annual event that follows the day after Thanksgiving.... the wonderfully coined "Black Friday". After spending the day with loved ones discussing what they are thankful for, watching NFL football and eating turkey until they pass out, our friends to the south then embark on their real national pastime..... Shopping !( aka.. running up the old credit card)
Every year, we see the same type of footage... people stampeding through the doors to get at the 99 cent DVD's and the homer Simpson "soap on a rope" deals. I cant wait for tonight's footage!
Can you imagine a Canadian Black Friday? I doubt it would happen here because...
1) It usually too freaking cold during the End of November to line up all night outside.
2) We are just too darn polite. There would be no pushing and shoving. I can see it now... "Please, after you, let me get the door." or" No, after you....I insist." and " Oh, you wanted the the last $5 Lava Lamp....here, take mine instead.".
I cant wait for tonight's footage!
