From Thanksgiving Friday “massive traffic jam, leaving black tire marks on the road” in Philadelphia during the 60’s, to a completely different level of meaning : “high profit in the books written in black” in 1981. BLACK FRIDAY has transitioned into synonymous with: SALE. The friday after Thanksgiving has become the biggest shopping day of the year, the most important day for many retailers in North America. A traffic jam in Philadelphia in the 60’s has grown into a global term focused on shopping. No more red alerts in the books on the 4th friday of November. No, no, only black ink with sky rocking numbers.
Welcome BLACK FRIDAY, let the holiday shopping begin. And the holiday season too. I do really feel with those working this day though; one long, hard-working day where the goal is to survive while for the opposite it is to be prepared to pull out that credit card and not forget to be ready to fight for your right(s). It’s SALE time.
Retailers pull out all their guns to be the best, the first and the most spectacular and honestly, some deals cannot be left behind. I suggest you to take the opportunity to invest in your closet, I will, but I’m not a fighter, physically, and therefore I thank God for online shopping.
Forget about the anxiety of survival, high pulse and panic attacks while trying to avoid the battles (where you might loose a shoe while being pushed on the ground by the crowd) or being pulled in your hair over the last pair of Loboutin’s, Big no. We live in the world of online shopping, seat yourself comfortable, preferably in front of a fireplace with hot chocolate in your hand and just click your way through the crowds. But be quick, good deals are gone fast. As I’m a frenzy online shopper, I helped you on the way and picked out some good deals. Just click.
Oh, and see what I found, hello Haider, that suede bomber jacket from Haider Ackerman has been on my mind for a long time, now it’s time. You will be mine. For many years, we will be happy together.
And btw, keep “cyber monday” in mind.
