Doesn't everyone have a major opinion about Black Friday? After all, it's basically a national holiday based on shopping, and who can resist the temptation to snag as many deals as they can? Of course, it is ironic that Black Friday always begins only a few hours after everyone's finished their plates at Thanksgiving dinner. One minute, you're told to give thanks for all that you already have; the next, you're encouraged to join a mob of ruthless shoppers and dive deep into consumerist culture. But hey, I guess you can shop for items you can be grateful for during next year's Thanksgiving. It's a cycle that never ends. Point blank: Emotions are at extremes, the energy is high, and what each zodiac sign thinks about Black Friday will probably make so much sense.

Black Friday is the holiday everyone loves to hate, and hates to love. It's an almost necessary sacrifice that many make to accomplish all the major Christmas purchases at a lower price. So get out of bed, grab your shopping BFFs, and make the best out of it, because if you don't, someone else will.
