Black Friday

Posted on: December 4, 2009

Being that I’m not from the United States, I am nto accustomed to the tradition of Thanksgiving and the aftermath known as “Black Friday”. Last week, I spent thanksgiving at a teammates house in Bradenton and we decided to check out the sales at the Prime Outlets at 12:30am.

It was madness! The traffic was backed up a mile from the mall and finding parking was almost impossible. At the mall, there were people everywhere. I couldn’t believe there were so many people that go shopping in the middle of the night until the early hours of the morning. It’s something I’ve never seen before. There were even people wearing pyjamas.

It was strange to see a jam-packed shopping mall, with everyone from the ages of 10 to 60, at 2:00am. I also don’t realize why the shops don’t just run the sales during the day, what benefit is there to do it night? However, it is kind of cool to have a midnight shopping night once a year.
