Black Friday shopping: Get over it!

Is it really that big of a controversy? Sure, the Thanksgiving break should be spent with family. But who says that it's not going to be? Black Friday is like a collaboration of two holidays in one. It's the day after Thanksgiving and a day to shop with loved ones for Christmas. So what if it just so happens to be at amazing prices?

Traditions change, and they are different with every family. Personally, I, my mom and my grandma have gone shopping every Friday after Thanksgiving together and the spirit doesn't disappear. It's a fun and thrilling experience that can create lasting memories. Why would someone want to get rid of that?

Once again, citizens of this nation pick something to criticize that is as simple as if you don't like it, don't do it. I'm a strong believer in if you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all.

And if you don't particularly like Black Friday shopping, you're more than welcome to stay at home with your family. Many others will have the same amount of holiday cheer as you, enjoying the new season.
