Incoming Black Friday


Ok I admit I missed it last year. At that time, I didn’t even know what’s it. I thought it’s some kind of a remembrance day for a certain scary tragedy. Now I know it better. This year year, it will be on 24th November. Here is a short definition:

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, is historically one of the busiest retail shopping days of the year. Many consider it the “official” beginning to the holiday season. Most retailers will open very early and usually provide massive discounts on their products. – source: Wikipedia

That’s it. So why Black Friday you may ask. I read it somewhere it’s because some retailers operating in loss(red ink) through the year, finally make profit(black ink) on holiday season. That’s why they called it Black Friday. When I knew about this I was like oooo black does not refer to scary thing after all.

The best thing about Black Friday is shopping. Black Friday and shopping is synonym. People in United State at least will be having shopping spree both online and offline. And it’s even more crazier on the internet. A lot of websites are listing all the hot deals. The most popular one is :

So, if you are in the US, watch out for this day. Prepare your wallet and and watch the site.
