Ohhhhhh Black Friday, the biggest sales day of the year when stores mark down product 50 maybe even 70% off. The day when people wake up at some ungodly hour to go to Walmart at 5:00 in the morning, push and shove their way to get a an Xbox for 200 dollars. Some crazy stuff happens on Black Friday, people will do anything for a good deal, but with new online shopping and stores starting sales on Thanksgiving evening. Black Friday is on its way out of common culture.

I for one always thought the whole Black Friday thing was ridiculous, but now with online shopping as popular as it is, and with stores now starting their sales on Thanksgiving evening, It’s really now pointless to participate. Why get up early and battle a sea of angry, ruthless customers when you can just wait for Cyber Monday and peacefully shop online for Christmas present, plus you’ll probably get better deals online anyway. If you somehow can’t find exactly what you want online, just go to Target, Walmart etc… on the evening of thanksgiving when it is much less busy and with the new development of websites like Amazon and other online stores, you don’t have to wait very long for the things you ordered.

Black Friday is coming a thing of the past because of the things I just mentioned and more eventually who knows, Cyber Monday may become the biggest sales day of the year.
