Last weekend was the ThanksGiving Weekend and the curtain raiser for the holiday season to begin in the US.
This was also an opportunity to catch up with your families, take a break from the fast paced worklife.
Apart from relaxing, the most anticipated and eagerly awaited even is the "Black Friday" sales. The "Black Friday" is the day when most of the bigwigs of the retail industry put out 'blowout' sales for a short span of time. This also signals the beginning of the shopping season and would also indicate the health of the retail industry based on the way people would spend. To make the most of this sale, people queue up in front of the shops very early. Hats off to these people as they brave the weather to collect gifts for their loved ones.
Frankly, I do not have the strength to brave the weather/crowds to do such a shopping but feel more & safe in the sanity of online shopping.
