Congratulations on getting through Thanksgiving, whether that meant a large family dinner, a smaller pandemic-appropriate gathering, or a solo holiday.
Today is Black Friday, which usually means large crowds at the malls but will likely be more noticeable in the form of lots of delivery vans criss-crossing local streets next week. As always, but especially this year, please try to shop local whenever possible.
Despite the holiday-shortened week, there was plenty to report on. Here are the most-read articles of the past five days on ARLnow:
