Black Friday

In 3 hours and 30 Minutes is it a normal holiday sale or a crazy black Friday sale?

IM EXCITED

A 'word' of advice: If you don't expect anything, you won't be disappointed.

I have once 'experienced' Black Friday during a holiday in the States, so I'm anxious to see what'll happen in the virtual stores..

It's when americans all stamp on people to get silly sales. Apparently it's named that because of it being the main day stores would sell in "black" and make profit. I don't know if that's true though.

Australia had something similar years ago where people would die. "Opening at 7 we will be selling 4 fridges worth $9000 for only $1" Kind of thing, which were eventually banned.

People have died here in the states as well. Here is a recent example. I'm pretty sure I have heard of others, but I didn't dig too far into Google to find them.
