Have you ever heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday? They are relatively new terms here in the UK. They have been taken from the modern American tradition of heavily discounting everything in store (Friday) and online (the following Monday) after the Thanksgiving weekend, and is regarded as the official start of the Christmas shopping season!
People go mad for it in the US and have been known for getting trampled after queueing overnight to get into stores! It has to be seen to be believed. Some stores now open at 3am and some don’t even bother closing the day before.
These monster discount shopping days have recently been adopted here in the UK, and we have decided to offer our customers 25% off all Christmas lighting and decorations from the Friday to Monday!
