Happy Thanksgiving!
Hopefully most people know by now that they can shop much more intelligently, conveniently and comfortably on-line than waiting in a freezing cold dark parking lot on Black Friday, November 28th which has now started a day earlier on November 27th Thanksgiving Day.
If you still have visions of Black Friday being a delightful experience then watch comedienne Karen Alloy’s video below giving her experience of shopping on Black Friday as “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” plays in the background.
