Once you go GREEN, you’ll never go BLACK.
Green Friday delivers a new take on the traditional Black Friday. As more and more people embrace marijuana – so does it’s popularity. So what is Green Friday? What is it all about? In order to understand what’s so Green about Black, we have to understand Black Friday. Duh.
Why is Black Friday called Black Friday?
According to Kimbery Amadeo from Balance online publication, Black Friday is derived from the tradition of people in Philadelphia going out to shop the day after Thanksgiving. The mass of people shopping created such chaos in the streets and traffic that black could only accurately describe the violence and havoc an herd of people cause. Of course, engaging in strictly pure commercialism, some will protest.
Why is Green Friday called Green Friday?
According to Urban Dictionary, Green Friday takes on a few meanings. One is the strict protest of commercialism by donating to local charities. I’m skipping Black Friday this year and donating a lot of stuff to charity.
The term even took on a social, economical and political meaning. Social – desire to bring mindful practice, self-expression, experimental learning, and compassion. Economical – promotes social identity development over economic growth and efficiency. Political – encourage a transparent and accountable law process that allows for the maximum public input in the democratic system.
But those are boring! We personally enjoy the last take provided by Urban Dictionary – a new holiday stoners celebrate the night of thanksgiving into Friday where they get high and eat all the leftovers they can.
Joey: man I can’t wait to eat this whole pumpkin pie and leftover turkey tonight
Kyle: I know man this Green Friday is about to be unreal
