It's the time of year where after giving thanks to those who've made a difference in our lives at Thanksgiving, we switch our focus to the next big family get together, Christmas. But shopping at the last minute is stressful, and shoppers will often be left scrambling to get something when shelves are already empty.
Thankfully, some clever people over in the States, noticed this, and came up with a genius event of gargantuan proportions, to help shoppers spread their spend and get amazing deals.
I am of course talking about Black Friday.
