This is the season to be "Jolly" or is it the season to make all the rich retailers jolly. People all in a frenzy for Black Friday and Cyber Monday are really neglectful or oblivious to what the surge of shopping is all about. We'll as a refresher try this on and see if it fits.
All year long retailers are trying to get that cash out of your pockets. Supply and demand are a virtual fluctuating vortex that we all are a part of. It's laws are governed by the simple need and desires of people at any given time. Well, retailers have know how to manipulate the need and desire and turn it into a sale. That's why we are bombarded by reminders to buy things we don't event know we want. It is so hard in today's economy to get the middle income members of society to spend their future hopes and dreams in financial form that retailers were coming up in the red, meaning at a financial loss at the end of their fiscal year. Something had to be done. Retailers across the globe began putting up big sales for the day after Thanksgiving and it did wonders for their bottom line.
When people caught on to the big hype of sales on that day, they naturally wanted to be first in line in case the store sold out of their merchandise. Earlier birds get the sales! Well, now the friendly retailers seeing their yearly sales almost double in this one day began coining the term " Black Friday". Yes the retailers were no longer showing numbers in red for their bottom line. This one day of the year keeps them in the BLACK.Cyber Monday is a virtual reflection of all the sales you can get online. Retailers want you shopping all week long and into the year end, just so they can be in the black.
This year was truly a Black Friday with people actually loosing their lives to shop on Black Friday. Will this shopping phenomenon ever disappear and will we ever go back to just offering sales for "End of the Year".Even if this US shopping tradition never ends the hope is the some will become more courteous and responsible shoppers.
