It seems like the Norway where I am living likes to take American traditions to they hearts. Even though no one in Norway does celebrate Thanksgiving 2017 at all. Everyone is working as normal over here on this day. Yet, the Black Friday sales have spread to the Norwegian shopping malls, electronics malls, food malls etc The commercial ones over here goes bananas. Yes! Prices are cut upto 50 to 70 percent. Also, many of the stores open their doors at 07.00 in the morning on that Friday! But Thanksgiving, which is the holiday before Black Friday in USA is Not a holiday at all here.

Black Friday isn’t a official holiday in all of the USA states but California state gives state government employees days off on this mysterious Friday

Black Friday is not an official holiday in all of the United States of America states. However, in California on the west-coast of USA and some other states observe “The Day After Thanksgiving” as a holiday for state government employees, sometimes in lieu of another federal holiday such as Columbus Day.

This special shopping go crazy day started up in 1952 over in the stats. It’s sort of the sign as the beginning of the Christmas time. After this day all of the prices before Christmas is getting more expensive so that stores earns extra because of all those buying gifts for each other. Black Friday is for sure a very commercialized day. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005. However, here in Norway this shopping mania started up only a few years back. Maybe 2-3 years back only.

It really seems as if Black Friday has come to Norway to stay. Now, many days before Black Friday. Many stores and shopping malls already announcing about Black Friday shopping mania.
