Boxing Day is generally to move out inventory that retailers didn't sell on Christmas. It makes more sense to me than Black Friday which just seems like an arbitrary day to start Christmas shopping.
No the point of black friday is to show us americans just how big of hypocrites we are. We have thanksgivivg, the day to be thankful for the things u have and emphasizes on giving not recieving. Then the next day people are fighting and killing each other over material objects they want but dont need.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
