Black Friday is one of the biggest annual shopping events in the world. This unofficial holiday is celebrated on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The tradition of Black Friday and the huge sales that come with it started in the US but it soon crossed boundaries and has now become a global shopping event.
Black Friday is an absolute gift for shopaholics and bargain hunters, but it also provides us with a lot of memes that are targeted at our bank balances post-Black Friday. Let us have a glimpse of the memes on Black Friday that will definitely make you chuckle.

While Black Friday to some is an opportunity to get awesome deals on electronics and other items, some view it as harmful consumerism that is partly responsible for climate change. Inspired by Climate activist Greta Thunberg and before the UN Climate Summit, the people of France targeted Black Friday sales in shops and malls and protestors even blocked the distribution centre of Amazon, the online retail giant on the outskirts of Paris. Activists blocked delivery lorries and placed banners on gates and fences with the slogans "Stop Amazon" and "Amazon: for the climate, for employment, stop expanding, stop overproduction".
