Got an invite, it's not my celebration but what the hell, someone is going to feed me and ply me with wine, seems like a good thing

I had friends in the UK who booked a remote foreign holiday each year over Christmas week to get away from it all.

Always fancied that myself.

Day after thanksgiving is Black Friday where people knock lumps out of each other to save a few quid.

Erin fell out with WW because we allegedly pinched Halloween and Black Friday off themAlso we were going to have a Thankgiving DayHas far as I am concerned the yanks can keep all of the above along with Proms night and Baby Showers which have cropped up from overseas and cost a fortune.

I don't go but there are some really good savings to be made if you pinpoint what you want, get it and leave.

I have lived here 41 years and never done a Black Friday, nor do I ever intend to.. I hate shopping at the best of times.. I'm not about to go and get roughed up to shop..
