S.M. told me that REI chose to remain closed on Black Friday. Following this announcement, I saw a list of other stores doing the same thing. I am glad as I choose not to go out on Black Friday. Ever.
It symbolizes everything that Christmas is not…greed and violence.
On that day, S.M. and I get out our Christmas decorations. We spend all day decorating and listening to Christmas music. At the end of the evening, we sit down and watch our first Christmas movie of the season.
That’s how we do it…oh, and I bake gingerbread.
