Are you going to be doing any Black Friday shopping this year?
Back in the day, I had an American boyfriend. (He was raised in the United States, but came to Canada for university. We met at our first full-time jobs as writers.)
One year, we went down to New Hampshire to visit his parents.
It was my first time celebrating American Thanksgiving. His mom cooked a huge feast and decorated the place so well, even Martha Stewart would approve!
As a Canadian, it was really exciting to partake in the frenzy of Black Friday shopping at midnight.
We went to the mall, and it was packed, even though we got there a little before the witching hour. And once the shops opened, everywhere you looked, there was a swarm of people in the Black Friday beehive!
I hit up Coach, Banana Republic, and a few other places. It was far too easy to go nuts, but I had set aside a budget for this shopping extravaganza, and I made sure not to spend more. (Always practice responsible shopping. No item, no matter how coveted, is worth getting into debt over.)
Since then, I haven’t made a trip south of the border for American Black Friday shopping, but over the years, I’ve noticed that the Black Friday Fever is spreading to Canada. We’re getting more sales here than years ago, so now instead of heading south in search of a good deal, you can support the local economy.
In this post, I share with you The Body Shop’s Canadian Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday Deals!
