According to Wikipedia, Black Friday is:
is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. The term dates back to at least 1966, although its usage was primarily on the East coast. The term has become more common in other parts of the country since 2000. Because Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday occurs between the 23rd and the 29th of November.
One of our friends has started informing us about the ongoing Black Friday sales at the different stores in the US. And since the Husband has been insisting on getting me a new laptop I asked a friend to find me a netbook. My current laptop is still working but I have been having some battery problems with it. We were at the mall two weeks ago where I saw some acer desktops which were on sale but the Husband thinks mobility is important. Anyway, after thorough searching and consultations, I finally decided to go for that purple Acer netbook. Yes, it is purple (though red was my initial preference). My mom asked me to buy one for her too since she finds her laptop too heavy to lug around.
