(VIDEO) Highlights From Black Fridays Past

BlogHer Original Post

It's interesting that the day originally called Black Friday happened in 1869 when the gold market plunged and sent droves of people into financial ruin. Or, um, hmm. Have things changed? Do we really need that $88 24" LED? Or at least, do we need it enough to fight for it? I think I'm going to sit on my in-laws' couch and digest.

Otherwise, I might have to deal with this.

Do you have any crazy Black Friday stories? Are you going?
