Happy Black Friday to everyone in the US! Wondering what Black Friday is, or why it’s called that? It’s the biggest shopping day of the year in the US with ridiculous sales that begin at even more ridiculous times of the early morning following Thanksgiving. It’s named “Black Friday” since it’s Friday and the stores’ revenues are “in the black,” which means the day is profitable (as opposed to losing money or being “in the red). There’s your education for the day!

If you are out Black Friday shopping, you may want to stop at Kohl’s for an exclusive Wicked-licensed Elphaba Christmas ornament. It even plays “Defying Gravity,” and yes, it’s Idina’s voice! It’s currently sold out online, but some stores may still carry it, and they might restock online in the coming days leading up to Christmas. If you find one, snap it up!

Note: You may also have luck finding it at Meijer retailers, or online via Long Island Treasures. If you’re in Canada, check Carlton Cards! Thanks for the tips, Linda and Lauren!

Hollywood’s most talented and irreverent stars will gather at the Hollywood Palladium to celebrate “Trevor LIVE”, the annual show benefiting The Trevor Project on Sunday, December 5, 2010. Recognizing the suicide prevention efforts of community leaders, the Trevor Life Award honoree is Kathy Griffin, and Trevor Hope Award honoree is Levi Strauss & Co., with guest performances by Sarah Silverman, Wayne Brady, Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel, Neil Patrick Harris and James Marsden, Queen Latifah, Telly Leung, The Dan Band, and Tracie Thoms. This one-of-a-kind show is under the guidance of Special Guest Producing Director Adam Shankman, with Special Guest Musical Director Ricky Minor, Special Guest Choreographer Mia Michaels, and Special Guest Script Writers Carol Liefer & Bruce Vilanch.

“Trevor LIVE closes an historic year for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community as the tragic losses of young people have caused a resounding national outcry calling for an end to the bullying aimed at LGBTQ young people,” said Charles Robbins, Executive Director of The Trevor Project. “This event honors vanguards Kathy Griffin and Levi Strauss & Co. who are helping to usher in positive cultural change in this country. Their contributions to the LGBTQ community have always been significant, but especially recently, when young people looking for role models needed them, Kathy Griffin and Levi Strauss & Co. made their voices heard.”
