Which Day Has Better Sales: Black Friday or After Christmas?

So which day has better sales: Black Friday or the day after Christmas? Here is a comparison using Fry's Electronics ad scans for the two sales events from 2010; the ad scans are from Fry's Black Friday. There wasn't a lot of overlap in the items in the ads, but the simple conclusion, at least just from looking at these ads, is that Black Friday has the better prices.
