Just asked the Googe about Black Friday and it seems it's what you call the day after Thanksgiving. But since the rest of the world doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, maybe some other countries also call Friday the 13th Black Friday?
It's weird the number 4 is unlucky in Japan, I think 17 is unlucky in Italy.
I'm not entirely sure but this might be BS but doesn't the friday the 13th come from the date when the king of france killed off the cathars? (that maybe crap considering the amount of stuff about templars and cathars)
Black Wednesday is something to do with economics in the UK and Black Sunday is an album by Cyprus Hill
Hey Sneaky .. our Friday the 13th and Black Friday aren't the same thing.
Our Black friday is the friday after our Thanksgiving in November. It's a day full of huge sales and the official start of the Christmas season. To me the day is a Nightmare of people pushing and shoving and crowding down aisles to get some trinket that will be forgotten 2weeks after Christmas.
You couldn't pay me to shop on that day
... Ok well actually you could .. but it would have to be worth my while
