Black Friday—the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season—is a longstanding American tradition, as famous for rowdy crowds as it is for irresistible bargains.
In this edition of Bri’s Big Question (BBQ), Bri’s asking: Should we observe Black Friday?
Beginning with a brief cultural history of Black Friday, Bri then relates her own personal history with the holiday. (Spoiler alert: it’s traumatic.) She and the other Ladies share how—if at all—they now observe the day. Bri ends the conversation with helpful lists of “ways to center on Christ during Commercialized Christmas” and “Bible verses I am going to tattoo on the insides of my eyelids during Commercialized Christmas.”
