Three people die on “Black Friday” – is this what Christmas is all about?

“A Wal-Mart worker was killed Friday when “out-of-control” shoppers desperate for bargains broke down the doors at a 5 a.m. sale. Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers shouted angrily and kept shopping when store officials said they were closing because of the death, police and witnesses said,” according to the Associated Press.

“Shots rang out today inside a Toys R Us store in Palm Desert, killing two and causing shoppers at the busy store to scramble for cover,” according to the L.A. Times

Is this what Christmas is all about?  I opted to skip the sales and go donate blood today.  If you have never considered doing that, please do!  The Orange County Red Cross is very short on blood supplies and could use your help.  Click here to find out how to donate your blood.
