It’s that time a year of again. Time for cutting Thanksgiving turkeys and filing up on pie and mashed potatoes. The day after, sometimes even the night of Thanksgiving many families go “Black Friday” shopping. Standing in lines to get a good deal on a material object is fun and all but there’s such thing as “Cyber Monday” now as well where you can do essentially the same thing just online and without fighting for a parking space or big screen TV.
