Mr. Money Mustache's Exploration
The topic I pick is 100% Off Black Friday Sale, the topic talks about the each year's Thanksgiving's tradition is shopping on the Black Friday. The consumers always plan to shop on Black Friday because most retail store offer big sales. In Mr. Money Mustache's post, he introduced to the reader that he celebrated the traditional Thanksgiving at home without going to black friday's shopping. According to what he saying that, "In the wise words of Grandpa Money Mustache: “A Simpler Christmas is a Grander Christmas“, and you can read more about it in the holiday MMM Classic entitled Happy Buy Nothing Day". His family did not go shopping for goodies but his children make their own gift to keep their tradition. They will watch movie and having a breakfast serve by candlelight.
I do like this post because I think most people will shop on black friday after the Thanksgiving. It seems American's culture in today's society. During the Black Friday, the consumptions of goods will be increase because the price is lower than other days. The consumers will purchase more good because they expect the price getting lower after Thanksgiving. In MMM's view, he think most people already forget what Thanksgiving's old tradition means celebrate dinner with family together. I think is very important you know how to keep your past even the money is more important today. The money can make you happiness but we still need keep our family tradition because it mean something rather than money.
