What do I think of Black Friday? I think it brings out the worst in people. The stories you hear of people being pushed aside, beaten or even killed trying to get that last low-priced toy, television or game system make it something no sane person would subject themselves to, unless they are possibly addicted to adrenaline.
I also think that if people want to give a meaningful gift to celebrate the season, they can consider alternatives such as providing services to the recipient, such as doing chores they find difficult (especially for the elderly or disabled), cooking meals, giving something homemade or buying from a local craftsperson. Personally speaking, I went to Black Friday events for a few years and found it to be a madhouse at best.
