Re: Black Friday

It gets worse doesn't it? Black Friday seemed to start a week before the day itself and then stretched into Cyber Monday. Just to get those who hadn't spent up in the shops before the weekend to see what was online (still) or was this just to see if they could get rid of the rubbish that no-one had ...
