This past Friday was considered Black Friday since it's the day in which all the stores have incredible prices on merchandise. It's amazing what people do just to get a super deal on something they've been wanting such as an ipod or a television. When my parents and I were driving back home after Thanksgiving dinner at my aunt's house, I could see the lines forming in front of Best Buy and Toys R' Us. To me, this was a bit crazy. I understand that people want to save money but do they really need to camp out the night before just to buy something? This craziness just comes to show how we live in a consumerist society. I'm not saying that it's completely bad to want things but do we really need to camp out and be sleep deprived just to buy an item we've been wanting? Think about it. Would you do anything just to own something that you'll probably stop using in a couple of months when the excitement wears down? I think we need to rethink what really matters in life and not worry about having the newest ipod or the biggest flat screen t.v. It's okay to want things but not when you go to the extreme of camping out to buy them.
