So today is Black Friday in America – black friday is technically the day after thanksgiving which is pretty much the day to celebrate the official snatching of America from the Native Americans.

Black Friday signals the beginning of profitability for many retailers – from red ink to black ink. It is essentially the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Now in Nigeria we have black Friday without Thanksgiving….

You start to wonder what is wrong with us as a collective. Is there no one willing to be original? Couldn’t it have been even named green friday – Nigeria favours the color green and green is a Christmas color. Green friday to signal the emergence of the festive season and actually make the entire experience relatable?

I am just wondering out loud that’s all.

This weekend will be the 1 year remembrance for my bro in law- it will be a trying one. God help us…either way have a blessed and relaxing weekend.

    May his soul and the souls of departed continue to rest in peace.
