It’s Black Friday! There was a time when thanksgiving was about being thankful and appreciative of others. There was a time when Christmas was about giving. Unfortunately, every major holiday has turned into an excuse to shop and have sales. I can’t believe how big Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become. My plan is to not go shopping this weekend at all and spend it with my family. What about you?
