In the US, the day after Thanksgiving holiday is known as the first day of traditional Christmas shopping. So, from Slangman David Burke: American slang for shopping!

But the best way to make sure you don't get "RIPPED OFF" is to start by understanding the SHOPPING SLANG in this next SLANGMAN video!
