Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving is the official kickoff to the holiday shopping season. Before modern accounting practices came about, retailers would mark their losses in red and gains in black. Retailers report some of their highest earnings of the year on that day, hence the name "Black"Friday.
Check out www.theblackfriday.com for black friday deals from retails such as:
The Disney Store
Polo Ralph Lauren

Just to name a few!
A few tips for Black Friday-
1. Narrow down the stores you want to hit. With traffic and crowds you are not going to be able to hit a lot...Prioritize!
2. Have a big breakfast or lunch...shopping like this will take lots of energy!
3. Bring water with you...you will get thirsty
4. shop ONLINE...avoid the madness and shop in the comforts of your own home!
