There is a first for everything, and today it was a Black Friday sale at our local toy store with a promise of a vanvittige tilbud (insane sale).
The Black Friday sale is seen as an American thing, but just like Halloween and Valentines, Black Friday has finally hit the stores in Norway. The ‘insane deal’ they are offering is just a ‘buy two, get one free’ (I’m guessing the bargin part of Black Friday sales was lost in translation).
It is a little disappointing to see this alien tradition start up in Norway. There isn’t even a Norwegian translation for ‘Black Friday’. There likely won’t be; it will be left as another reminder of how another American tradition has immigrated to Norway.
