Ha Ha - With web shopping, there really aren't any sales anymore, either, 
except for a few loss leaders, or the latest tech gadget - I figure some people 
just enjoy the mild shopping insanity during black friday. Yes, I stay home,

 Black Friday is nothing more than a plea from shitty big businessmen to "bail 
us out because we don't know how to run a corporation".  For a lot of people it 
means "stay home Friday and stay away from the crazies on the road and at the 
stores".  I'm waiting for "Red February". :-D

   I keep forgetting about this black friday thing, here. Jesus. At least it 
is, technically, *after* Turkey Day, and so, the Xmas Season kickoff... 

 I like Canada a lot - As much as I love the US tribe, Canada is always a 
kinder and gentler example, to me, of how to act as a country, though their 
much smaller population makes it all a bit easier to manage, too. I cannot 
recall ever having met a Canadian, who was not friendly, giving, personable, 
and trustworthy. I worked with several, for years, in various tech companies. 
Have only visited Ottowa, though - Loved It - Instant Europe. I don't know 
where it comes from, but my daughter is a big hockey fan - not quite religion, 
but it is her 'go to' game. 

 Happy Thanksgiving, if yours is on the same day...or just good morning!

 I mentioned about Thanksgiving, being a less commercial holiday than our 
others, and am curious if a similar holiday exists in the other countries 
represented here? In other words, one not tied to religion or patriotism, or a 
great person, but simply to give thanks for what we have.
 Canadian thanksgiving is pretty much the same but we don't have the big 
shopping thing the day after. Canadians tend to be a bit more understated than 
Americans in most things they do on a large scale - oh, except for the hockey 
thing. That is religion here and considered their own invention although I 
think some arguments exist that Holland invented the first hockey sticks and 
the idea of hitting objects around a frozen surface.
