There is a genetic component to liking vegetables (especially bitter green ones) so maybe there is one for meat too. Or it's just smile taste preference. I have to be one of the most picky eaters... There are so many foods that I just find unpleasant or bad to eat. :-/
It's still weird to see Black Friday sales in Canada. Our big sale of the year used to be just Boxing Day (dec 26th) but now there are swig sales in November too. Haven't really taken advantage of it though. Crowds make me want to hide.
