The Darkest of Dark on Black Friday

Crowd at market; hopefully not on a Black Friday.

It seems Black Friday is upon us again.

It’s funny that we take a day to reflect on how thankful we are for the things that we have, and the very next day trample and bludgeon each other to death trying to buy a bunch of stuff we don’t need. Every year we’re treated to a spectacle of violence and greed. By now we take the circus for granted.

As Canadians watching from the sides we like to act smug but we’re just as guilty. Black Friday sales pop up here and folks camp in line to fight over Instant Pots.

The story goes Black Friday is so named because retailers who are operating in the red earn do such a high volume of business today that they are operating profitably in the black for the rest of the year.

What’s more important to you? Is it the day of thanks, or the day of things?
