This is the time, in our little corner of the world anyway, where our families re-connect, giving thanks and spreading gratitude while engorging on a feast of large birds, potatoes and green bean casserole. A tradition that ends in full bellies, leftover turkey sandwiches and the onslaught of the Holiday shopping season.
Of course, the biggest tradition of the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend is what retailers refer to as Black Friday. Maybe you’ve heard of this?
Black Friday dates back to the late 19th Century, and was considered the day where retailers were able to use the day’s huge receipts as a way to “get in the black” and become profitable for the year. Unfortunately, through the years, Black Friday has also become known as the day of the year in which you’re most likely to be punched while grabbing for the latest hot new toy, or trampled in an effort to reach the last five big screen TV’s that are selling for $50.
We certainly don’t wish that kind of shopping chaos on our faithful Geek Out and Geek Pulse backers or friends, so we decided to spread the Geek love with a fun little “Black Out” Friday promotion that will help you earn Geek Gear, gives you continued discounts and keeps you safe from large mobs of insane people.
You can find out more about our Special Reward on our Indiegogo Campaign.
From all of us at Light Harmonic, we wish your families a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe start to the Holiday shopping season!
Keep peace on earth, and good will toward men, and stay out of Walmart!
