Black Friday?

Almost every day, I read the local version of MetroExpress

What the....??!! Black Friday sale?

Yes, I know what a Black Friday sale is - as have encountered at first hand in the US a couple of times - crazy shopping if you ask me, and way too many people everywhere. But Thanksgiving is an American holiday/"thing" and yet it seems that Black Friday is adapted locally as an excuse to boost sales. What is the next tradition that will be adapted here?

Here in Canada Thanksgiving is in October, but we do not have Black Friday. That is until the day after the American Thanksgiving and our stores follow along. It's just retail greed as far as I am concerned, and I never shop on Black Friday!
