Black Friday, 2012

In what looks to become a yearly chit-chat ritual, Mr. Big Food has begun asking me when the term “Black Friday” became part of our your the Christmas Season vocabulary. And I’ve begun answering that I should know the answer to that question because I answered it last year. 

If you are interested, the answer is here. You’ll have to scroll down a bit as the post begins with a short quote from a crappy old guy who was the founder of the Golden Rule Store, known today as JCPbecause apparently calling retail establishments by the names of their founders is just not cool.

Those who have acquaintance with the urbane city of Cincinnati will find the answer funny.
