"Mom?", said my 7 year old in a very serious tone.
"When is Black Friday?"
"The day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday."
"So, let me get this straight.... Black Friday is a holiday that is right after Thanksgiving? Like, it's a holiday," and she held up two palms side by side and stared at them with furrowed brows, "right next to a holiday? Two holidays in a row?"
"Black Friday is not really a holiday for anyone except Store Owners who don't have to work at their store."
On an unrelated note, if you are going to shop on Non-Holiday Black Friday, Please consider shopping local. There is something deeply satisfying about exchanging money in a small business where it will actually go directly to the person who's dream it was to run a retail shop in your town.
