Perusing the internet I have seen a handful of references to 'Black Friday'. I kept thinking, 'When did people start calling Buy Nothing Day Black Friday?', Then I remembered 'Black Friday' preceded 'Buy Nothing Day by many years. I just checked on wikipedia, and the term Black Friday first appeared in the 1960's, while 'Buy Nothing Day' started in 1992.

I won't have any trouble not buying anything today. Even if I wanted to I could not because I have no $, and I am writing this while being hung on a ✞.
