FindLaw Holiday Shopping Tips: The Internet Edition

For many families, Black Friday is part of the Thanksgiving tradition. Whether camping out overnight or waking up early to snag deals, shoppers have spent years bundling up and fighting crowds to get the best holiday buys.

But holiday sales are no longer restricted to Black Friday. Now, stores are offering doorbusters throughout the season to convince customers to shop.

At FindLaw, we have mixed opinions about big box store blowouts. After reading one too many stories about shopping injuries, some of our staffers prefer shopping online for holiday gifts.

Thanksgiving means more than just reuniting with relatives and sitting down for a massive meal. It's also a time to give thanks.

Like many of you, the FindLaw team has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. And in giving thanks this year, many of our team members have also found time to give back.

The organization helps African American males with personal and academic development in addition to college scholarships. Our mission was simple: get our great writers, editors, engineers and designers to create a website worthy of such a fantastic charity.

The political environment is just too tricky, and why risk disturbing the sunny vibe of our California office? Therefore, we are going to let sleeping donkeys and elephants lie and focus today's Insider on the non-political aspects of the election instead.

Boring? We beg to differ.

While asking coworkers about party loyalty or favored presidential candidates probably would have resulted in awkward replies (we're a peaceful tribe), nearly everyone seemed to agree on one point: Make it stop already. We are ready to vote!
