Bargain Brawlers Celebrate Black “Eye” Friday

Black FridayBlack Friday is here! We have officially stepped into the holiday season, and with that comes intensive bargain hunting, fancy lights and music, and of course the natural urge to stuff our faces with as much food as possible. It’s the holidays… Why not?

But where did this term ‘Black Friday’ officially come from? And if it’s considered Black Friday, why do doorbuster deals start on Thursday?

Last night, as I sat in massive food coma, watching “Survivor,” the greatest reality television show of this generation, there was an internal battle raging inside me: Do I break tradition and shop for Black Friday Deals on a Thursday or do I take a stand and wait for those Friday deals like my ancestors and their ancestors before me? Needless to say the food coma took precedence and I pushed my shopping back until today.

So back to the original question: Where did the term Black Friday come from? Legend has it that the name came from the large amount of black eyes suffered  by these “bargain brawlers” trying to get a deal on the latest tech items. It was originally called Black Eye Friday until 1971, when the “Eye” was dropped from the name and officially became Black Friday. Although we completely made that story up, it almost makes sense no?

But on a serious note, let’s revisit the question we’ve continually failed to answer: Where did it come from? One theory links the name back to retailers, who claim that after an entire year of operating at a loss or ‘in the red,’ they would turn a profit and go ‘into the black.’ A second theory links the name back to 1869 and the crash of the U.S. gold market. Two financiers planned to buy up as much of the nation’s gold as possible to drive up the price and make themselves a large profit. Unfortunately this plan failed and sent the stock market into a large free fall, eventually leading to that day being named Black Friday. Although both seem plausible, the real origin of ‘Black Friday’ comes from the Philadelphia Police. They created the term because of the commotion that would ensue the day after Thanksgiving due to large amount of shoppers as well as tourists coming in advance for the Army-Navy football game played that Saturday. These same police officers were not allowed to take this day off and even had to work extra hours to deal with the traffic, crowds and large amount of shoplifters. By 1961 the term had gained traction in Philadelphia and later was reinvented nationwide sometime in the mid-to-late 1980s.

Now that you are completely caught up or simply just bored with the history lesson we’ve put you through, let us make it up to you with a weekend-long slate of deals! Visit the GOgroove website to take advantage of 15% , 25% , 35% and 45% OFF deals on select items. Remember, there is free shipping on all orders over $35!

Thanksgiving: The Stuffing of Facts You’ll Need to Impress Your Family

turkeyWith another holiday upon us, you may start to realize that not only are we the best one-stop-shop around for electronic accessories, but also the best fact checkers and joke tellers this side of the Mississippi. We not only appreciate the recognition but want you to know how seriously we take that job. As Black Friday continues to creep further and further into the Thanksgiving Holiday, we have a moral obligation to provide the facts and jokes needed to celebrate Turkey Day, before it passes by faster than the last piece of pumpkin pie. With that said, let’s get to it!

  • Contrary to popular belief, there was no turkey served at the first Thanksgiving. Historians say that the menu most likely consisted of deer, duck, geese, oyster, lobster, fish, pumpkin and cranberries.
  • Corn is considered one of the most popular symbols of Thanksgiving. It came in a variety of colors including red, white, yellow and blue.

Thanksgiving Joke #1 :

Q: What kind of music did the Pilgrims like?

A: Plymouth Rock

  • 91% of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
  • Wild Turkeys and Farm-Raised Turkeys have different flavors. With wild turkeys, almost all the meat is dark and has a stronger turkey flavor.
  • On the West Coast, Dungeness crab is a common alternative to turkey as the main Thanksgiving dish.

Thanksgiving Joke #2:

Q: Why did the cranberries turn red?

A: Because they saw the turkey dressing!

  • A scared turkey can run at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. It’s also said that they can reach flight at speeds between 50-55 miles per hour.
  • Thanksgiving created the TV dinner. In 1953, in response to the enormous amount of turkey Swanson had left over, a salesperson came up with the idea to package it onto aluminum trays with other sides.

Thanksgiving Joke #3:

Q: What is a turkey’s favorite dessert?

A: Peach Gobbler!

As the holidays kick into full swing, it always helps to be reminded to be thankful for the things we have. We wish everyone a safe and filling Thanksgiving Day and look forward to the madness that will ensue during Black Friday and later, Cyber Monday. Happy Turkey Day, and with that, we leave you with one last final joke…

Q: Why can’t you take a turkey to Church?

A: They use FOWL language!

Happy Halloween! Tricks, Treats and Spooky Jokes

Halloween-FB-Profile-GGWith Halloween lurking around the corner, like your neighbor’s creepily masked kid trying to frighten you as you get home, can you think of a better time for another fun, insightful and fulfilling blog post about fun facts and warnings of the upcoming holiday?

We didn’t think so! Sit back, relax, read on and enjoy the eerie knowledge we plan to cover you with, the same way those teenage kids cover your house with toilet paper for passing out dental floss. Breaking News: They prefer candy.

  • Halloween started in Ireland and originated from the Celtic end-of-harvest festival of Samhain. This festival consisted of lighting bonfires and wearing costumes to fight off evil spirits.
  • It is feared that on Halloween the boundary between the living and dead is blurred as both walk amongst each other. Humans therefore wear masks and dress up so the spirits do not recognize them.
  • Orange and Black are the main colors of Halloween because orange represents the harvest while black represent the death of summer.

Cheesy Joke #1: Why don’t skeletons go to scary movies?

                                  They don’t have the guts!

  • Trick-or-treating started from the superstition that ghosts could disguise themselves as humans that knock on doors for food or money. It was believed that if they were denied, the spirit would haunt that human.
  • Black cats and witches are forever tied together because it was once believed that the cats protected the powers of the witches.
  • Halloween only trails Christmas as the highest grossing commercial holiday!

Cheesy Joke #2: Why do mummies have trouble keeping friends?

                                  They’re too wrapped up in themselves!

  • The White House is haunted! Most ghost sightings are that of Abraham Lincoln. Spooky!
  • The Michael Myers mask from the horror classic ‘Halloween’ is actually a $2 Star Trek William Shatner mask. The crew was on a tight budget so they reshaped the eye holes and painted it white to achieve the creepy look you know and love today!
  • The heaviest pumpkin in history weighed in at 2,323 pounds.

Now that you’ve been educated on the holiday, cheesy jokes and random facts, we want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween. Remember you are too old to be trick-or-treating if you ask for high fiber candy and are losing breath going from door to door. Never trick-or-treat in deserted towns, houses with bloody chainsaws outside or near people summoning demons! Enjoy.

Final Cheesy Joke: What do vegan zombies say?

                                         Grrraaaiiinnnnsssss!

(You’ll thank us later when you are the life of your Halloween party with these great jokes… Happy Halloween!)
