It's That Time Of Year Again (1 Viewer)

With Christmas coming up we all know why Black Friday is so popular. Being a Christian I know what Christmas is supposed to be all about and I certainly celebrate that, but I fucking love gifts, and we all say "Merry Christmas" to one another, but let's face facts. Take away the gifts and suddenly, it's not so merry for many of us. Black Friday is nucking futs! People yelling at one another, shoving others aside and even get into scraps over significant markdowns on popular products. We all think we are getting unbelievable deals. What an illusion. lol

Surprised they call it black Friday. Just saying
Cultural appropriation Friday

Surly BLM have been celebrating Black Friday since March,
In nigger culture celebrate = riot, loot & steal

But back to the original post. I’ve never gone to a physical retail store for Black Friday sales, I’ve only shopped online on Black Friday twice (and I could have got the same deal a week later), and have only gone to a mall once for Boxing Day sales which was a monumental waste of time and put me in a homicidal rage.

I think you’re mentally ill if you want to sit in a lawn chair waiting overnight and then literally fight other lunatics for some bullshit sale to save $50 on some crap you likely didn’t need.

Yeah, nowadays you get good prices all the time when you look and compare online.
No need for standing IN LINE for a TV. WTF!
Do they have that this year too? You'd need a real respirator with a set of filters in this crowd.

that might change now. i wouldnt doubt it nor wold it surprise me.

i see a bunch of fucking greed,when people start scrapping. or trying to take items from peoples hands or carts. you want a good deal? wait for the after christmas sales. things will be cheaper. plus ive never participated in that bullshit,nor will i ever. now a days all one needs to do is compare. like Mcm mentioned. people want your money so bad,they will price match.


Christmas has always been a shithole for me the best part is the gifts u get and for God's sake fuck Santa cluase always hated that mofo since I was a kid

Xmas is a Christian take over of a pagan festival, Christians took over other pagan festivals to make them their 'own' & gather the crowds to their own beliefs & convert the 'sinners'. No one really knows or can put a date on when the man Jesus was really born, it's just not recorded.


I'm sorry if I have offended you

Here's an interesting bit of info...I saw this on a doco called zeitgeist a long time ago...
an interesting story
about the three stars that create ‘the belt’ in the constellation of Orion: Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka. As the three stars rise in the evening sky of December 24th, they were supposed to point to the dawn on the morning of the 25th, three days after the Winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. Thus in both pagan lore and Christmas stories we have a rising sun, three days after a dying sun, that gives hope to the world that everything is going to be okay: we’re going to have another growing season and harvest. More importantly, the three stars were sometimes known to the ancients as ‘The Three Kings‘ part of the elusive and enigmatic “Star of Bethlehem” legend of the Christmas story. For some historians, these all seems to tie in with actual, and therefore verifiable astronomical events. Let’s see if the do.
