For those of you outside the U.S. and it's insane spending habits, "Black Friday" refers to the day after our Thanksgiving Holiday. It is traditionally the day that most of the shopping for Christmas takes place. In this case "black" refers to a financial phrase "in the black," meaning that your company is profitable. The opposite of that is "in the red," referring to the use of red ink to indicate outstanding debt.
And all that aside, and no matter what, or when, or who you celebrate, no matter where you call home, or where your friends and family come from, I hope for nothing but the best for you and you families in the coming new year.
