Black Friday was actually the second day of hearings by the House subcommittee, which had been going around the country holding public investigations into Communist infiltration of unions, the film industry and the teaching profession.
Black Friday was also the first major mass student demonstration in decades. It led directly to the Free Speech Movement in Berkeley in 1964," said Irving Hall, who was a 24-year-old UC Berkeley teaching assistant who had come across the bay for the protest. "It made possible the 1960s in all its variations."
But sometime around 1994, Black Friday suddenly became a slogan for sales and an opportunity to camp out overnight the day after Thanksgiving and wait for stores to open with their door-buster deals at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m.
Change you thinking and lead the thought revolution. Here are my no #fail tips for Black Friday
1. Think clearly about how you want to celebrate and what you want to make the celebration about and then make a list there will be lots of distractions.
2. Make some #green with seasonal employment and get a discount on the items you really want.
3. Stay home and shop on-line Fill your cart the night before with items you want,and when you wake up, get the discount! Then ask questions before you hit the place order now button
Your quick pre-purchase checklist: will it ship before Christmas? Is it returnable? Is the shipping cost reasonable? (Sometimes it’s as much as you ’saved’ during the sale–might be worth it to head to the store instead.)
4. If you must shop on Black Friday then Go big or don’t bother. Don’t waste time on the small stuff that’ll go on sale later. Choose one store and one item and be the first in line.
