Today is Black Friday, the day Americans would go out of their way to buy stuff they don’t need, lured by the promise of paying less for said stuff. I’ve always hated this so-called holiday, which pops up on my Apple Calendar (for some reason) mostly because the only thing I like to buy in life (food & alcohol) is pretty much never on sale.
This is why I’ve always been so fond of the dude in this pic (above.) I bet he works his butt off year round (Black Friday included) making sure his product moves by luring customers to the wonderful world of chicharrones on discount.

One thought on “Mexican Black Friday Is Here!”
I agree. I don’t like this so call “Black Friday” either. This so called holiday brings out the ugly side in people to spend on unnecessary items.
But when you buy a raspado, corn on the cob with cheese, tamales, churros or flowers at the freeway off ramp to treat loved ones, is not only gratifying, but it makes us more human by helping others who need to support their family instead of major corporations.
