Part.1 关于黑色星期五



Black Friday is an informal name for the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, the fourth Thursday of November, which has been regarded as the beginning of the country's Christmas shopping season since 1952.


“黑色星期五”是在美国的感恩节(11月的第四个星期四)后一天,而这一天自1952年起就已成为美国圣诞购物季的开端。


Most major retailers open very early, as early as overnight hours, and offer promotional sales. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and some other states observe "The Day After Thanksgiving" as a holiday for state government employees. Many non-retail employees and schools have both Thanksgiving and the following Friday off, which, along with the following regular weekend, makes it a four-day weekend, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers.


大多数店家都会很早营业,甚至在前一天晚上就开始打折促销的活动了。其实这一天并不是法定节假日,但是加州和其他一些州会以“感恩节后一天”的名义给州政府工作人员放一天假。许多学校和非零售业工作者也会有这一天的假。这样的话,加上前面的感恩节,后面的周末就会有连续4天假期,实际上这也增加了许多潜在顾客。



Part.2 这一天到底有多疯狂




At present, that day has been observed by United States,Canada,United Kingdom,Mexico,Romania,India,France,Germany,Switzerland,Australia, New Zealand and other countries.


现在,“黑色星期五”已经成为N多国家都过的“购物狂欢节”了,比如说美国,加拿大,英国,墨西哥,罗马尼亚,印度,法国,德国,瑞士,澳大利亚,新西兰等等。


There have been reports of violence occurring between shoppers on Black Friday. Since 2006, there have been 10 reported deaths and 111 injuries throughout the United States. You can feel how crazy the shoppers are.


而因“黑色星期五”而导致的事故报道已经有很多篇了。自2006年起,在美国被报道出来的因“黑色星期五”购物导致的死亡人数已有11人,受伤人数达到111人。从这个数据上,你就可以感受到大家对那天的购物有多疯狂了!

无论你在世界的哪个角落
