WHY OH WHY DO THAY CALL ITΒ BLACK FRIDAY
Sound so evil like end of the world and the devil is

Hello Greg...

White would sound bad...

You know people would take a fit...

Red is already taken...

Stores have Red Tag Sales...

Purple is a color of honor so that wouldn't work...

People's behavior says it all...

The mob kills clerks...

People grab stuff out of other people's baskets...

It really should be called Crazy Friday...

People haven't figured out the Scam yet?

Oh wait!

We're talking about humans...

Nevermind...

πŸ˜’

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

HI Greg...My youngest daughter was just asking me today why it is called, "Black Friday"....lolΒ  I believe it is called that because it is a time when retailers expect to get out of the red (negative sales) and get into the black (positive profit sales)Β  I get your point...It does sound so evil.Β  I am with Sparrowsong that it should be called, "Crazy Friday" because people are not themselves and go into a mad dash and chaotic behavior to get something on sale....I will not be out on that day....lol...I will stick to buying presents online....xo ;)

Haha, So true, Greg. I've asked the same question. It's hard to believe that people look forward to 'Black Friday'. Well penned my friend.Β  Barry x

Hello Greg...

Maybe, one day I will get off that easy...

I do shop in stores and online too because, if the stores don't make money they will go away...

I don't do Black Friday unless it's a big purchase...

I started Christmas shopping right after Christmas last year...

I go out of town for Christmas it's my new tradition...

It's easier for me to go see family than it is for them to come to me...

With kids they won't let me get in the door if I just bring food...

I buy kids presents and pass them out at random pit stops along the way...

😊

I'm waiting for the Angel Tree so I can pick some names and get theirs put together and delivered before I leave...

I think you're way is great way to get together, indeed!

Whatever you do...

Enjoy!

Hugs again...Β

My Dear Greg,

I've got a great idea.
Why don't they change the name to "Sergeant Friday"?
I think that we should all "cop" a plea.

Love,
