If you wait all night in the most sincere parking lot on Thanksgiving night, the Ghost of Black Friday will appear and grant unto you low prices on cheap Chinese-manufactured plastic gadgets and such to make your holidays merry and bright and toxic.

This is the true meaning of Black Friday.

It's called "Black Friday" because it's the busiest shopping day of the year, moving the retailer out of the "red" (loss) into the "black" (profit) on their balance sheet. (well, that's what they all hope anyway)

It's a catchy little name for the day after Thanksgiving that convinces people to forget the meaning of the holiday season, all in favor of crappy gifts and unneeded electronics that we're all told we "must have".

National Fast Food Day

It's National Fast Food Day!
The concept of ready-cooked food for sale can be attributed to the Ancient Romans. In many cities, street stands or "thermopoliums" (small pub-like shops) offered hot sausages, bread, and wine to patrons on-the-go. Thousands of years later, in 1867, the first American fast food restaurant opened in New York. It was a hotdog stand on Coney Island!

Today, fast food is an American staple. There are over 300,000 fast food restaurants in the United States alone, making it nearly impossible to drive down the road without going by at least one fast food chain restaurant.

Need more proof of the popularity of fast food? In 1970, U.S. consumers spent $6 billion on fast food. Thirty years later in 2000, U.S. consumers spent $110 billion! Take part in this American tradition and enjoy National Fast Food Day!

November 17, Homemade Bread Day

Today is Homemade Bread Day!
Nothing beats the aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through the air. For hundreds of years, baking fresh bread was part of the daily routine for most families. Some even made their own yeast!

Today, homemade bread making has been simplified by the invention of the bread maker machine. This appliance was first released in Japan in 1986. Since then, its popularity has spread worldwide to Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Some bread machines can also be set to make other things such as pasta dough, jam, or Japanese style rice cakes.

The great misunderstanding is that "Black Friday" has anything to do with retailers going from being in the red (loss) for the year to going into the black (profit.) The term originated in Philadelphia more than 60 years ago to refer heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic the day after Thanksgiving.
