It’s the day after Thanksgiving. How many Christmas holiday traditions get started today? Now, if you’re like millions of Americans, you’re looking for great deals on Christmas gifts. For others, it’s a time to be with the girls, or a day for guys to get the next best techno-gizmo for a great deal. Can I give you some advice? Keep doing the Black Friday excursion, but don’t get caught up in the materialism. I know it’s hard—after all, it is about the deals. But, it can also be about the giving. Like, every dollar you save you could give to the Salvation Army or homeless shelter. Or, maybe on your list could be a Project Angel Tree or a needy family in your neighborhood. This Black Friday tradition could be the most unforgettable.
