Black Friday’ Starts Holiday Shopping Season
Story by: Sophia Ly
For a lot of people, November is the start to the holiday season.
Thanksgiving, is called “Black Friday”.
Everyone does something different for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. The only exception is that everyone has to eat on Thanksgiving.
Freshman Sydnee Pribbernow said that her dad’s side of the family gets together and celebrates Thanksgiving.
Freshman Dylan Callahan stated, “My whole family attends my house for Thanksgiving.
Juniors Makayla Buckley, Shauna Hundt, and Jamal Jackson all stated that, with their families, they eat “…big dinners.”
Hundt enthusiastically added, “We have some pecan pie and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Mmmm.”
She also stated that sometimes her family has eating contests, like with pie.
Pribbernow and Buckley stated that they do not go Black Friday shopping. Pribbernow, however, did share that her brother “…was the first at BestBuy and he got me a laptop.”
“I want to,” said Hundt, who has never gone Black Friday shopping.
“Crazy” is one word to describe Black Friday. Jackson stated that one time, “These two guys almost got into a fight and a guy pushed the other into a rack.”
Jackson went Black Friday shopping to purchase a new game system.
Many students have jobs, for example, Emma Sharpe is employed at BestBuy and has to work on Black Friday. She hopes that the time “…goes by fast.”
Junior Katarina Dicker has gone Black Friday shopping. Dicker said she goes “…because everything is cheaper on Black Friday and it’s fun to get up early and get the good deals.”
The November events are right around the corner. Get ready for Thanksgiving, the start to the holiday season, and Black Friday, the beginning of everyone bustling around shopping.
