What is Black Friday? ~ ANGOL Szókincs


A Black Friday természetesen Amerikából ered, de már Magyarországon is elterjedőben lévő szokás. Mi, vásárlók jól járunk vele, hiszen nagy kedvezményeket kínálnak a boltok ilyenkor. De gyakoriak a tömegjelenetek, sőt az USA-ban sérülések is előfordultak már...
Nézzük, hogy mi ez az egész, angolul!

***
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States.
The day's name originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving

Since the early 2000s, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales.



There have been reports of violence occurring between shoppers on Black Friday. Since 2006, there have been 7 reported deaths and 98 injuries throughout the United States. It is common for prospective shoppers to camp out over the Thanksgiving holiday in an effort to secure a place in front of the line.
