Christians turn Black Friday to 'Bless Friday'

From News Now-

In an ongoing attempt to make the day after Thanksgiving also recognized as Bless Friday instead of Black Friday – the biggest shopping day of the year – churches are setting aside November 25th to honor Jesus Christ through service projects that will bless both the givers and receivers … far more than any bargain gift from a retailer can do.

Bless Friday, which began back in 2010, is being observed this year by churches in Texas and Washington state, where families and individuals are encouraged to come together and celebrate Bless Friday as an alternative to Black Friday. It is geared to put the focus of Americans’ giving back on Jesus’ love – rather than tangible store-bought gifts.
