Black Friday. The day that the shops finally turn from red numbers in sales to black (=positive) numbers in sales. Profits should be on the way after this day in November.
This originally American initiative has spread to other countries in the world. All for the sake of good commerce. Some hate it, others love it because they might get a specifically good deal on a product or service they wanted for a long time.
Have a look at this infographic to see how other countries and cultures deal with this.
If your country is not there, leave a comment below and tell the world how your Black Friday looks like.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
