Maniacal people stand in lines outside retail stores all night for the first holiday sales of the season, while employees inside the store prepare themselves to be attacked by the ghost of Ghengis Khan reincarnated. And it's all for sales prices.
The day after Thanksgiving is a retail holiday called Black Friday. According to Wikipedia, it is historically one of the busiest retail shopping days of the year, and that's because the sales are insane.
Normally you have to wait until Thanksgiving to see the ads for Black Friday, but this year some daring Internet site are giving us goods early. Go to bf2005.com, gottadeal.com and blackfridayads.com to see the ads for all major retail outlets.
