All about BLACK-FRIDAY (quick explanation)

In a friends’ FB post I put this explanation up..and thought why not share it with everyone.  So here it is..  (open to corrections, if I have got it wrong).-Mani

`My american-grown friend explained it to me.. In America, Thanksgiving is the big `public/open/ all inclusive’ festival.. where everyone is invited to the meal.. (in comparison to X’mas where only close family is invited).. Both are equally big.. And their tradition is that until Thanksgiving is finished, no X’mas sales, decorations. trees or other initiatives even start! (unlike in UK when shops start selling xmas stuff in August!). Thanksgiving is the last Thursday of the month in November….and so the friday following it is where they start their big sales..(our equivalent of Boxing day).. It ‘s also when their first Xmas related sales start.

Black Friday

The reason for `black’ Friday..instead of pink friday or green friday or whatever is …until this point.. most shops are in the red with their accounts…and as sales start..they go from red to black So it’s actually a description in favour of the sellers and shops…

So there you go 🙂

ETC: Enfield Town Circle – Pagan Moot in North London

Enfield Town Circle- Pagan Moot.    This is Pagan pub moot (monthly social) that takes place in Enfield, North London (well, almost north London).  Established by April..way back in 2006, it’s a good social opportunity for new people to come meet & socialise indoors.

Originally held in another pub, ETC is now at Crown & Horseshoes- a lovely waterside pub. We often sit by the sofas near the large fire place (front, right) or by the cosy round tables in the rear dinning area). We tend to have debates & discussions on current pagan matters or topics of interest to members…and mostly socialise.

Here’s a video where April talks about the Moot
