From what I can understand- This is the day after thanksgiving when the shops etc- cut prices to entice you to buy their products.
Well over here the shops are in trouble. We seem to have permanent "Offers" to get you into the shops. We are building up to christmas. The traditional time when everyone overspends. In previous years- starting on jan 1st- the sales start. All those gifts you bought a couple of weeks beforehand at full retail will now be with a massive discount.
Well the sales started a couple of weeks ago. Large stores are offering discounts on all purchases for a couple of days or over a weekend. Makes no difference to me as I have limited funds available for me to buy new products that I don't want or need in any case.
So what were your Black Friday purchases that you now regret? Have to admit that I resisted. Went out to a couple of the Sale days last week and didn't want to buy the Chain saw with too many fragile bits on it at a price I could afford- But Did buy the wifes new car possibly a month too early.
EDIT---Wet again and I rode yesterday. Big D.I.Y. store in local town has 20% off everything today so just going down to see what I still don't want. Even if it is a bargain.
