Shopping is a bit of a relaxing hobby for me, which is sometimes troubling for the bank balance.
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Since 1952, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early and offer promotional sales. Some websites offer information about day-after-Thanksgiving specials up to a month in advance.
With the clean air and lack of traffic or industry, countryside areas are much healthier places than the average city.
Another benefit would be the sense of community that comes with living in a small village where everyone knows each other.
The pace of life in the countryside is slower, and the people are more laid-back and friendly.
This is a picture-postcard village.
