Black Friday – The Rush is On!

In America it’s Black Friday and the rush is on!  Commercialism reigns supreme as retailers open on Thursday with sales to entice spending.  Black Friday is really on Thursday now.  How early is early?

In years past the stores opened at 8am instead of 9am, then 7am, 6am, 5am, 4am, 3am, 2am, etc.. until now they open 8pm the day before for a select few.

Think back to your childhood for your secret desire for a present.

  • What was it and why did you want it?
  • Do material goods figure large or small in your family culture?
  • Was it a Matchbox, remote-controlled, or Mustang car that would make your dreams come true?
  • What message do you give your children, or society give children, about gift giving and the values it represents?

Black Friday – The Rush is On!
