Very good topic to write about, Jan. Some are crazy enough to camp out all night!! Sensible people should keep well away from this kind of madness. Even donkeys are wary of carrots! as always...a 7. hugs // paul

Well done by someone who has never been in the madness. I won't go out to shop in the USA for that day. We have enough bargains the rest of the year. Thankfully Canada is not as focused as the USA. Loved the subject and the poem. Hugs and more hugs Edith

Thanks Edith - we don't have it here on our little Island and seeing the horrendous news of the violence in the UK today made me think what a sad materialistic life some people lead! Hugs Jan xxx

Fortunate for me, my wife isn't into shopping and when she does shop it's always at a bargain price.

Oh I love a bargain too Richard but not when there is a price to be paid and people are fighting over what is merely a TV set - humanity still has so much to learn! Hugs Jan xx

I sentiment Richards thoughts. To me it's strategic marketing to get rid of stock. If it's a bargain for the shopper, then so be it. Nice one Jan, James xx

I dread to think James and we should ask ourselves why do people behave like this fighting like small children over a bargain TV - and is it really necessary

Can you imagine if it was food that was going to be scarce. It beggars belief what we would be viewing!!

I'm just watching the news James its shameful the way people acted - just to get old stock heavily discounted - such a sad world we live in - doesn't say much for society. I'd never heard of it until 3 days ago - we don't have it on the Isle of Man! :-)Hugs jan xx

Me too I hate Friday nights, its dark out, everybody is out because it's the weekend but I think that is why they call it black Friday because it gets so dark out at night. Right Jan! Right!

Demetrios last Christmas my gift was for my husband to get through his cancer surgery - we spent £10 on each other and will do the same this year - I never heard of Black Friday until a couple of days ago lol - material things mean nothing - it is family and friends that are the real gifts in our lives - the older I get the more I appreciate that!hugs Jan xx
