Linky Friday: Black Friday


Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website

    Black Friday was not a thing in my family. It is not something that I get or see the appeal of. Why wait outside in the blistering cold and black dark when you can be inside? The Vox link doesn’t really do much to explain its appeal. The shopping seems to be at random, a look for deals rather than things that are needed or wanted. From what I’ve read about it previously, this is the norm. The biggest sales item on Black Friday is apparently towels. Towels are good and necessary but you don’t need to buy them every year.Report

    Canada is starting to get black friday sales now apparently even though it’s unrelated to our Thanksgiving.

    Boxing Day sales are still a bigger thing though. We sometimes go do some shopping on Boxing day, specifically at places that don’t do Boxing Day sales – it’s so nice and quiet at those stores…Report

    Walmart doesn’t want to be turned into a homeless camp and would rather take the PR hit now. That’s… probably wise of them.Report
