BLACK FRIDAY I (intermediate)

What is Black Friday? Where and why does it take place?

Watch this video and find out what it is all about:


Yes! It's about shopping! SHOP TILL YOU DROP is the logo of the day.

Lots of people in the U.S.A. start their Christmas shopping on this day. Chain stores and smaller shops open their doors early in the morning in the hope of making big sales and great profits.

Why is it called BLACK Friday? There are two theories to explain it:
  • One considers it is due to the marks of wheels on the roads on such a busy day.
  • The other one says the reason is that benefits are recorded in black ink whereas losses appear in red.
What is your opinion about a day like this?
Is there something similar in your country?
