If you look up Black Friday on Wikipedia you’ll see that it says that the earliest known use of “Black Friday” to refer to the day after Thanksgiving occurred in the journal, Factory Management, and Maintenance, for November 1951, and again in 1952. In this case, it referred to the practice of workers calling in sick on the day after Thanksgiving, in order to have a four-day weekend. In the 80’s merchants objecting to the use of a derisive term to refer to one of the most important shopping days of the year but now they seemed to have embraced it. But no matter what, many of us watch and wait to see if the things we want are going on sale as the shopping season is kicked off in the U.S. Even though I live in Canada we have our version of Black Friday and with online shopping we Canadian’s are able to take advantage of some of the same deals as our friends in the U.S.
I’ve already taken advantage of the 50% off offer from Legacy Family Tree Webinars. They literally have hundreds of webinars that you can watch. Sure there are some free webinars and then, of course, each Wednesday there is a new webinar that’s free for a week, but sometimes you just want to watch the video you want to watch in your pj’s at 2:00 a.m. (or is that just me?) So that’s where the membership is handy. Have a look at the upcoming webinars HERE. For only $23.74 US I think that’s an excellent value for their complete library and some videos are only available to members.
If you’re wondering what other deals are available for Black Friday you can always go to my Black Friday/Cyber Monday page at Hound on the Hunt. Check back often as I’m getting offers on an almost hourly basis.. and some I can’t post until a specific time. Every DNA company has a Sale and so whether you haven’t tested yourself or if your thinking of doing some targetted testing of family members or someone that could help you with your brick wall then now’s the time to buy the kits. I stock up, and then I’m ready when I need a kit rather than pay full pop. (Remember my brothers didn’t call me the Coupon Queen for nothing).
Finally be sure to check out the things we have at Shop the Hound. We have two promotions right now and one starting tomorrow.
