In the United States, Black Friday takes place just after Thanksgiving, and is traditionally known as the day people start their Christmas shopping in earnest. It has also been ranked as the busiest shopping day of the year for a number of years now.
So it was only a matter of time before it came to this side of the pond, with stories of mass hysteria hitting the headlines in the US.
• Although the holiday shopping has its roots in the US and revolves around Thanksgiving, the countries that have traditionally not been known to celebrate this holiday are also gearing up to take part in the shopping fun that the holiday represents. In India, the savvy consumers are keen on loosening their purse strings and being part of the holiday rush.
So if you are shopping fanatic it would probably be the best day for you. The discounts are heavy so it’s better to call your US relatives now, all those ones you envy alot.
