Black Friday Blog Hop

What does Black Friday mean to you? Traditionally, it’s the first day of the Christmas Holiday season. It also used to represent the day that a lot of retailers finally turned a profit for the year, meaning that their account books turned from “red ink” to “black”.

As a public librarian, for me it’s usually meant one of the busiest days of the year. Sounds funny, doesn’t it. People don’t shop at the library. But for students, it’s the last big weekend before end of semester, and a lot of students have big papers or projects to finish. College students are home for the weekend, and turn up at their local library to study.

Even with the internet, people still come in for help. And folks who are off work for the long weekend come in looking for good books to read. Libraries have lots of those. Patrons who want ebooks want recommendations.

The more things change, the more things remain the same.

So this is my last year with the holiday weekend off. I start my new job in early December. Next Black Friday, I’ll be working. It’s all good.

What does Black Friday mean to you? Work? Shopping? Bargain-hunting? Or just a long relaxing weekend in a turkey-induced coma? Participating in the Black Friday Blog Hop?

  15. don’t have black friday in my country, I wouldn’t attend anyway, not the crowd person 😀

  16. Black Friday? It’s a big PITA. I prefer shoping on-line! Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. I wouldn’t touch the stores today, but this hop is a nice new way to observe!


  18. Black Friday means leftovers and a little shopping. No doorbusting for me I think all the turkey is making me sluggish? So it’s great to come home, rest my feet and entertain myself with a great blog hop.

  19. I do not like crowds so BF shopping is not for me! I will be spending my day hopping and then snuggled up reading! Well that is after I decide on what new book I have just added to my to be read list! It gets longer every hop! Thanks!

    I am thankful for all the wonderful books I am finding on the hop!


  20. If i do go it means shopping with all the girls in the family! Happy Black Friday! Thanks for the chance to win some great prizes!

  22. Black Friday is definitely about bargain hunting. I do enjoy all the hustle and bustle, but ultimately it’s about getting great deals on a limited budget.

  23. It’s a long relaxing weekend for me. Thanks for doing the hop!


  24. This is the BEST way to spend Black Friday. Sitting at home, hopping with old friends and making new ones. I can’t handle the crowds anymore so I only do Black Friday shopping online if I do any. I tend to pick up gifts throughout the year so come November I’m finished. That way I can spread out the purchasing and not spend a fortune at the time of the year when my job is at its slowest and my paycheck is at its lowest. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

  27. Black Friday is people fighting crowds while I stay home and read a book.


  28. I went shopping this morning. It was the first time in three years I had the guts to face the crowds, but I actually had a really great time. Happy Holidays.


  29. black friday to me means stay away from the stores and see if there’s any online deals – regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  30. This year it means participating in the hop, which that being said, is there a better way to spend it? I am not a black Friday shopper but I did brave it for some amazing pillows last night. While I hated every second of it, it was all worth it when I put my head down on them to sleep last night!

    Thanks so much for being a part of this hop and the giveaway.

    Happy Holidays,

  31. Chaos…I no longer go Black Friday shopping. Too many crazy people out there. I don’t have the patience I had when I was younger, LOL. So today I am staying in and blog hopping, instead of shopping! Thanks for the hop!

  32. I have a system that works and can usually be done in about 3 hours and not have to shop for xmas after that so it works for me.

  33. I did some online bargain hunting today. Thanks for participating!

  34. Getting inspiration for Christmas gifts from all the flyers in the paper.

  35. I am not shopping. Not for me. Instead of shopping, I’m hopping! I prefer to do my shopping online.
    Happy Black Friday.

  36. I love Black Friday shopping, but this year I waited until the store was almost empty and I still got all the specials on my list. I live in a small town and even though there are a couple hundred people in Wal-Mart, most are friendly and they even say excuse me when they push you to get to what they want. I would never shop in the places they show in the news, way too scary., but in my town, I try to go every year.

  37. Chaos and Crowds. Thank you for the giveaway and being part of the blog hop. 🙂
