‘Tis the season, to be merry and thankful, celebrate the joys in our lives with people we love and some good food. Among the holidays that begin in November and continue through the end of December, there is one holiday that is so formidable and universally loved, it is celebrated with devotion by literally everyone. It is known as the “Black Friday”.
The shopping fever spreads like wild fire and affects even those with the best immune system and the strongest will power. It all starts with shiny pamphlets that land in our mailbox sporting magic words like “SALE!”, “50% OFF” and “While supplies last” in big red letters. The attack on our senses continues with emails, ads, commercials and the worst of all, peer pressure.
