BLACK FRIDAY • NEGRO VIERNES - hits Costa Rica


Well, more American Consumerism has invaded Costa Rica!  This time

BLACK FRIDAY!!!!

WHAT IS "BLACK FRIDAY"?
If you're asking this question, OBVIOUSLY you're not American as this is only one of THE BIGGEST days of the YEAR for AWESOME DISCOUNTS (often 30-70% OFF!!!!!!) off all things Consumer Related!!  It's where stores give MEGA DISCOUNTS!!!  The 2 BIGGEST SALE DATES of the year I remember from the U.S. were Black Friday (to stimulate the Christmas•Holiday sales - ESPECIALLY in more financially challenging times) and the Day After Christmas (THIS was MY FAVORITE day of the YEAR!!  I was the envy of many of my friends as I didn't get many gifts under the Christmas Tree as my mom would take me and a friend to the Day After Christmas Sales and I'd get 10 times more than anyone else got!!  There I'd get $100 coats [this was in the 70's] for $20 and such!!  For many years I was one of the best dressed/trendiest girls in school because of this!!  We mainly shopped at Bullocks - the "expensive" store!!!!]) - though we will most likely NOT be seeing the December 26 - Day After Christmas Sales in Costa Rica as a BIG % of the population goes to the beach and the Central Valley becomes this WONDERFUL Ghost Town where MOST businesses are CLOSED (not counting big ones).

WHEN DOES THIS BLESSED DAY HAPPEN?
"BLACK FRIDAY" happens on FRIDAY - the DAY AFTER U.S. Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving happens on the 4th Thursday in November)!
