The Saturday after Thanksgiving--known nationally as Small Business Saturday--evolved in response to the mob scenes at shopping malls on "Black Friday." It's intended to remind people that shopping small and shopping local is the civilized--and usually much more fun--alternative to getting trampled in a chain store or clicking on some monster-retailer's website "deals." It also keeps your holiday dollars in your local community.
