Salvatore Ferragamo

Today, the day after Thanksgiving, is known as Black Friday because it is the biggest shopping day of the year. Every store across the country is offering the biggest sale to entice shoppers to start their Christmas shopping. It is also the day that most retail stores make so much money that the revenue generated will turn the stores account from red (loss) to black (profit).

So have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

This is an very cool shot!
No, I haven't started shopping yet and I'm debating whether to shop online or fight the crowds. Which do you choose?

I've done just a small bit of shopping, but I don't plan on doing much shopping this year.

THis is a lovely capture Ming. They should pay you. I bought a little in Paris for the kiddos. This will be a leaner Christmas for all of us I expect. I do NOT shop here the day after Christmas. It's insane.
Cheers,

The new baby blog arrived last night. Now I will be up all night feeding two mouths! Yikes

I moved to Japan to avoid the Christmas rush.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in my country, although we celebrate Christmas :D
I had no idea that was the meaning of Black Friday!
And no, I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet! I still don't know what to buy... but I need to do it asap because I hate last minute shopping!

No way!! I'm online all the way now. I read about the guy who got trampled to death at the Walmart on Long Island, and I'm staying indoors.

I love this shot at night of the Ferragamo store..very expensive merchandise.

I've shopped for a few things, but NEVER on the week-end after Thanksgiving. It's too crazy out there.
