BLACK Friday, a typically American tradition, sees shops give huge discounts in the days after Thanksgiving.
Though it started in the US, the annual sales bonanza has become a tradition across Europe, including in Spain.
The sales mark the start of Christmas shopping, encouraging shoppers to find the perfect gifts.
This year, Black Friday falls on November 24, but many shops will hold sales over a longer period from Monday, November 20 to November 27.
The final day of discounts is ‘Cyber Monday’, when many online stores will launch special sales.
