Letter: Just say no to Black Friday

Black Friday is the Christmas before Christmas. It’s the day where kids beg their parents to buy them toys and video games, and it’s the day adults save money on household appliances and groceries. That being said, it is one of the most chaotic days of the year. If you decided to go Black Friday shopping this year, odds are you had to stand in at least one line full of eager shoppers. The deals are crazy, the shoppers are insane and all the stores are wide open and full of deals. My advice: Don’t go Black Friday shopping. There are plenty of other deals all throughout the year and Black Friday, being as crazy as it is, it should just be overlooked.
