Here in the US, the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday because it is considered to be the busiest shopping day of the year. The malls and stores are full of crazy shoppers because there are only 30 more days until Christmas as of today. I usually don't go shopping around this time because I don't like the crowds, rude people, the traffic, and the fights over a parking place.
