At a Black Friday sale in Sweden: can't believe the prices. Must buy now.
*Sidebar: I get our Thanksgiving spread at a turkey shop. Together with the meat, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie mix they sell Butterfinger candybars, which I don't see much in Sweden. I don't know why they do this, but they've done it for a few years and I like it. I look forward to it. So now, along with all the traditional dishes, Thanksgiving has come to mean a chance to taste whatever it is they put in Butterfingers. I'm thankful for this too.
