Could someone explain this black friday thing?
To the non Americans like me.
Must be something like a sale, US- nationwide.... every friday?
Thanks a lot!
US is a Capitalistic Society.
Thanksgiving Holiday which is always the last Thursday of November, creates a 4-day weekend for most and this weekend is approximately one month before Christmas Holiday (the LARGEST marketing and sales-of-merchandise event of the year). The marketing people created Black Friday (keep sales numbers in the black, not in the red) on the Fri. after Thanksgiving (which many have off from work and are free to shop) as the Official Opening of the Christmas Buying Season. (No Christ in Christmas there). Cyber Monday is the Monday after the weekend and again it is a trumped-up merchandising day that entices people to buy more products on Monday (which most people do not have off from work?..guess you are shopping at your employer's expense!).
It was ALL created by Republicans!
Hope that helps explain.
