Happy Black Friday

Not exactly sure why it is called Black Friday, but I didn't get 'Happy Thanksgiving' in on time, so this is the next best thing.
Besides, it should be called Happy Post-Thanksgiving Day or something, because 'Black Friday' has awesome pre-Christmas sales, no?
Wikipedia says the following;
'Many stores offer highly promoted sales on Black Friday and open very early, such as at midnight, or may even start their sales at some time on Thanksgiving. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and some other states observe "The Day After Thanksgiving" as a holiday for state government employees, sometimes in lieu of another federal holiday, such as Columbus Day. Many non-retail employees and schools have both Thanksgiving and the following Friday off, which, along with the following regular weekend, makes it a four-day weekend, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers.'  
Still doesn't explain it very well, does it?

4-day Friday? 
4-day Weekend?
Pre-Christmas Friday? 
Mighty Friday? 
Untidy Friday? 

Anyway, the Holidays are upon us!
Whether it is a newly created family by choice,
or the family Gd gave us, it is a brief time for gratitude.
It could be better, it could be worse, but it is temporary.
