#BlackFriday is currently trending on Twitter, with users from all over the world sharing their shopping experiences, as well as queues, traffic jams and road blockages that they came across following the onset of the massive consumer rush on 29 November.
The term Black Friday was originally coined in relation to Friday sales in the US that occur every year following the celebration of Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November, just ahead of the Christmas shopping season. However, America is not the only country currently engaging in the shopping craze, with various stores, businesses, and websites promoting tempting offers and shopping deals to frugal customers worldwide.
As the Friday craze was well-documented by Twitter users, many could not miss the chance to joke about their desperate financial situation and increased consumerism, while also sharing quite unusual sales offers.

Despite all the jokes, Black Friday has been increasingly associated with injures and even deaths due to the significant safety risks that buyers face as a result of their attempts to get their desired items as quick as possible.
