In the USA Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November (in Canada the second Monday in October) and then followed the next day by a splurge of discount sales at retailers, which supposedly returns their accounts to the ‘black’ from being in the ‘red’. This tradition spread to Canada (called Vendredi Fou ‘Mad Friday’ in Quebec), and has spread around the world in the last couple of decades.

You may wonder at what point Wokeists will complain that it should be Black, Indigenous and Person of Color Friday… 🙂
