I have been really puzzling myself about this, I've had some emails etc proclaiming that this Friday, today, is Black Friday. I was thinking what happened today in history, what monumental massacre or something took place? I found out that it's the day after Thanksgiving day, because of the shopping that goes on. Fair enough but that's in America, we don't celebrate Thansgiving here, so why are companies insistifng that I need to shop today? OK, I may need to buy a pint of milk or something, but I'm not being persuaded to empty my bank account on electronic goods!
