WHAT IS LEGO?
LEGO is a popular toy brand allowing kids to create colourful toy structures such as buildings, vehicles and even space ships. Although it was originally intended for children, LEGO has also become popular among adults interested in puzzles and hobby projects. The LEGO company was founded by a Danish family in 1932. The name ‘LEGO’ is an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt”, which translates in English to “play well”. The company has passed from father to son and is now owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder.
WHAT DOES THANKSGIVING HAVE TO DO WITH BLACK FRIDAY?
The USA has a strong tradition of celebrating thanksgiving on the last Thursday of every November. As this special occasion is also close to Christmas time, the Friday of the very next day was soon seen as the beginning of the holiday spending rush. And so originated Black Friday, a post-thanksgiving, pre-Christmas spending opportunity in the US. It has since spread to the rest of the world, Australia included. The global shopping phenomenon now competes with Boxing Day as Australia’s biggest shopping extravaganza. Here are all the best Black Friday deals across tech, fashion, beauty, homewares and more.
WHAT IS CYBER MONDAY?
Cyber Monday is Black Friday’s trusty counterpart. Held on the Monday following the Friday, Cyber Monday initially began in 2005 as the “online” version of Black Friday back when online shopping wasn’t as widespread. Since then, Cyber Monday has become mainstream and raked in US $9.4 billion in 2019, according to Adobe Analytics.
