I remember that I read years ago that the idea behind Black Friday was to assume retailers would not be in the Red ..... by that I mean they did not lose money on Black Friday. I shopped on a Black Friday many years ago and I promised myself I would never do that again. So, what color day would tomorrow be, Green perhaps?? I took that picture of Ally years ago.

I was thinking it would be Red, since everyone spent all their money on Friday. Now the customers are in the red. Your dog is so sweet and cute.

If the customers are in the red then it's a green Saturday because they raked in the dough. Thank you, she is so much fun to photograph

Thanks I know too many people that wait until saturday after BF to shop but that's getting almost as bad as BF is. I personally won't do any serious shopping until mid January.

I have so much fun with her, she always tries to turn away from me when she sees the camera but I always manage to get a least one or two shots of her. I think green could work if the retailers got rich today.

That's a beautiful photo, Ally is so adorable:) I didn't shop today and never have shopped on Black Friday. It's a rat race, in those stores! Hopefully, tomorrow won't be White Saturday(snowing)

Oh that's right, you're in a snow area. I hope you won't have to battle the white fluffy stuff I had to shop just once on a BF but I haven't done it since. Thank you, I get the biggest kick out of her when I'm trying to get pictures, she tries so hard to turn away from me when I start snapping.

Yes, I hate driving if we happen to get snow here @kobesbuddy it's always so blasted slippery and to make matters worse people here don't know how to drive in it.

I am glad we have nothing like your Black Friday, today is a gray Saturday, it rains.

but who wants a gray Saturday, better to have a pink or yellow or green one, right? It started as a way to boost sales for retailers way back and has become a kind of tradition which I find appalling, they've made a mockery of a holiday just like they did with Christmas. It's such a shame.

@rebelann Today is not grey, clear blue sky, but a horrible cold wind blowing from the Alps, I almost preferred the gray Saturday.

I get the feeling retailers aren't doing as well with BF as they did when it first got started, I don't know anyone who'll shop on that day. I won't be shopping for anything other than groceries until mid January.

@rebelann I really am pretty well set for clothes. Groceries of course, must be bought. I need to go to Staples to get my Christmas Story stuff but otherwise, I am pretty well set. If I buy stuff, its stuff that must have a place to be in my house or I should dump something that I already have. Black Friday really does not apply to me,

That's pretty much me too @sallypup of course lately I've had a lot of trouble with my wardrobe shrinking while hanging in the closet, now I'll need to get some new long sleeved shirts that'll fit better. I just hate looking like a sausage.

Thank you, she does give me some really good photo ops. I do the serious shopping in mid January when retailers are trying to stock up on the new stuff and get rid of things that didn't sell for Christmas.

I like to wait until mid January when many retailers have to lower their prices in order to sell the old stuff to make room for the new.

But John, Black Friday is about the retailers making money not the consumer spending it .... if it were about the consumers it would be Red Friday cuz people go broke buy junk.
