It was Black Friday alright - but not that you'd recognise it from the YouTube videos. No fisticuffs over the latest hot Christmas toy in aisle 12, no brawny brawls in the food courts and, disappointingly, little by way of people going bananas over vegetable steamers.

Instead, what we got was a rainy, grey Friday that kicked off what was almost a peaceful beginning to the Christmas shopping season.

So busier then, certainly - but not particularly sweaty, unpleasant or violent.
