Black Friday Bad For The Planet -- Should be banned

Yes People FRANCE wants Black Friday banned.
France's parliament is to debate banning Black Friday on the grounds that it is bad for the planet.
PROMOTES " over consumption "  and flouts strict French rules on SALES periods.
....France's ecological minister appeared to back the idea , warning against """ Frenzied Consumption """  linked to the Sales Weekend and its negative impact on the environment.

*******  Last week I bought a laptop on a ( pre Black Friday Sale ) ::: that was what the ad said .
I saw the same item  in yesterday 's same company 'flyer' . The same item had jumped $100  for today's sales.

NB. I hope any leggings were bought earlier.  ( I like that lol.) hehehe

Expat, don't knock Halloween and Trick or Treating until you've tried it.
There is nothing more exciting for a kid, I still enjoy it.

Yes fine in North America, its an evolution of those countries mainly from Celtic immigrants with a twist from Souling, or Guising. It's just turned up in the UK as a copy cat with no real history, and no cohesive participants unless in American/Canadian enclaves such as Cobham in Surrey. We recognised Halloween, All Souls and All Saints.

Anyhooos as an early Grinch why the hell would you encourage dental caries, sugar rush, obesity, and unless properly supervised assaults on minors.

Exactly: Halloween is for KIDS. Not drunk millennials dressing up like nuns and sluts, it's so boring.
