I have never been to a thanksgiving dinner! Does that shock you? Well the main reason is that I live in England, and Thanksgiving isn’t really celebrated here. But Black Friday? Yeah, we always look forward to that.
We are all global citizens and trends that are popular in the USA, usually put in a subtle appearance in the UK. Take Halloween for example. When I lived in Jamaica, one would only hear about Halloween on the TV as a popular tradition in The States, Now, it is featuring more prominently especially in well to do areas.
So as a global citizen, I find myself joining with others and being more excited about cheap deals I can get as part of Black Friday (November 25) more than I do about Thanksgiving. Not good enough, I know.
