Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving Day in the US, is the first official day of Christmas shopping, and as such, it’s known for its huge sales both online and in brick and mortar stores. Despite it being an American tradition, Black Friday has spread to other places in the world, where it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving and everything to do with shopping. Most big stores and many small ones offer pretty good deals on Black Friday, but do you really take advantage of them? Are you an avid Black Friday shopper who stands in lines outside stores for a good deal? Do you keep your Black Friday shopping to online stores? Or maybe you don’t care about Black Friday at all? It’s time to vote!

Do you even have Black Friday in your country? What do you think about the Black Friday sales tradition? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
