Hello, and welcome once again to Christmas Central Elf News. I’m your host, Winter Clearlight. Once again you are joining us in the middle of ChristmasWatch 2012. There are just 34 days left, but that’s only part of the story for today. As we noted yesterday, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. And with Thanksgiving upon us, that means that it is time to look forward to what comes next. Of course, I refer to Black Friday, the perceived true start of the Christmas shopping season.
Black Friday as a concept has a long and storied past. A term coined in Philadelphia, PA, it was used by Police and taxi drivers in reference to the difficulty in managing the rush of traffic. In the 60s there was an attempt in the same region to change the perceived negative term to “Big” Friday, but it didn’t take. Eventually, the slow spread of the name was connected to another idea, that of accountants recording positive fund balances in black ink, and the name was cemented.
Everyone knows how rough and tumble, how busy and hectic, how intimidating going out to shop on Black Friday can be. So why not take a day away from the crowds, and shop here with us? You can order anything available to us online, and we have great deals. On our trees alone, you can save as much as 80%, and up to 75% on shatterproof ornaments. Our lights, as well, are up to 50% off. There is so much to save, so much to shop, how could you resist giving the site a chance?
This is Winter Clearlight. I wish you all a happy Holiday season, and we’ll see you again after the holiday. Thank you, and that’s the way Christmas is.
