If you do clean out you refrigerator only once a year, this is the day. But if you only do it once a year you are going to find things in there you will not even remember. Perhaps because things will grow on their own in there! We all have the good intention to eat our left-overs but the fact is, there are many, many times we never get back to them. We often intend to drink that little bit of milk left over the morning before it went bad, but we don’t always get there. It’s sort of like that drawer we stash things into that we do not know what to do with but don’t want to get rid of. So today is the day to surprise yourself and find out what you have stashed in your refrigerator and rid yourself of them before Thanksgiving. (You’ll probably add a lot more then).
How to celebrate – Clean out your refrigerator. Hire someone to clean out your refrigerator. Make a discovery of some new creation evolving from your forgotten substances in the refrigerator.
Okay, so now we’ve all had a day where we got along with each other, way over eaten and shared and peace and harmony. Now it’s time to beat each other, run wild in the streets and search endlessly for a park space. It’s Black Friday!
It is the day when retailers begin to make profits, up to 70% of their yearly sales. Also one of the reasons so many retailers are going out of business. If they do not draw in the customers, they cannot afford to stay open because it will be followed by Cyber-Monday, the death nail of retailers everywhere.
It always amazes me how violent Black Friday becomes considering we are celebrating one of the happiest times of the year. Is your life really going to be better because you saved an extra hundred dollars on that big screen tv or a pack of batteries cost you 2 dollars less? Apparently so. People are now going to the malls armed to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Well, try to enjoy the day, even though most people aren’t going to. You can come back to all the left-overs after you have been out fighting the crowds. I hope you find the deal you are after! But try not to forget the reason for the season.
How to celebrate – Stay home and watch tv! Go out early, you’ll have even more time to get frustrated. Buy a suit of armor and defy anyone to touch you!
