I’m not a big fan of Black Friday. I don’t go out. I don’t look for deals online (although my husband loves Black Friday online). Apparently, there have been incidents of violence this Black Friday, as consumers become a bit rabid about their deals.
However, many people like Black Friday, and enjoy the frenzied shopping, and the opportunity to get good deals. Many of my fellow PF bloggers have written about Black Friday (and Cyber Monday), and here is a sampling of some of the articles from this past week:
