The day after Thanksgiving has become America's wildest shopping day. Closed all day on Thursday, chain stores all across the nation open early on Friday. Some stores open at 12:01 Friday morning, while others open at 4 a.m. Some "sleepyhead" stores, like Target this year, don't open their doors on Friday until 6 a.m. From Friday to the day before Christmas, this is the season when businesses make as much as 25 percent of their annual revenue. This season puts many businesses "in the black"—that is, into profitability—for the year.

Reporters from local TV stations interview people who camp out in front of stores a day or two before the doors open on Friday. These people patiently wait in line to get products that are discounted 50 percent or more.

"Oh, we have fun," said one camper. "We bring games to play, we watch TV and order lots of pizza, and we meet interesting people. And, most important of all, we save big bucks!" The catch, of course, is that only a very small number of products are available at the largest discounts. Regardless, each store has plenty of other items that are reduced from 10 to 50 percent—saving shoppers from $10 to $400 per item—to entice Americans to shop.

Not all Americans appreciate this frenzy of shopping. Reverend William Graham, pastor of the Church of the Risen Jesus, wants to rename Black Friday. "We want to call it Remember Jesus Friday. People should start the season with the right attitude. Christmastime has become a Season of Shopping. We want to make it a Season of Giving. And we don't mean giving IPods, DVDs, flat screen TVs, and other crap. We mean giving your back, your mind, and your hands. Help an old lady clean up her house. Teach a kid how to read. Visit sick people in the hospital or in nursing homes. Pick up the trash in your neighborhood. Give blood to the Red Cross. Do volunteer work for charities. Celebrate Christmas by remembering Jesus and forgetting Santa Claus."

Ngày thứ sáu đen tối

Ngày sau ngày Lễ Tạ Ơn đã trở thành ngày mua sắm lớn nhất. Đóng cửa tất cả ngày Thứ Năm, chuỗi cửa hàng xuyên sốt cả nước mở cửa vào sớm Thứ Sáu. Vài cửa hàng mở cửa vào lúc 12:01 sáng Thứ Sáu, trong khi những cửa hàng khác mở cửa lúc 4 a.m. Vài cửa hàng "ngủ gật", như Target năm nay, không mở cửa vào Thứ Sáu đến 6 a.m. Từ Thứ Sáu đến ngày trước lễ Giáng sinh, đó là mùa kinh doanh chiếm 25 phần trăm của thu nhập cả năm. Mùa này có nhiều kinh doanh "trong bóng tối" -là, trở nên lợi nhuận - cho năm.

Những phóng viên từ trạm TV địa phương phỏng vấn những người cắm chốt trước cửa hàng một hoặc hai ngày trước cửa mở vào Thứ Sáu. Những người này kiên nhẫn xếp hàng để mua những sản phẩm giảm 50 phần trăm hay hơn.

"Oh, chúng tôi có niềm vui," một người cắm chốt nói. "Chúng tôi đem trò chơi theo chơi, chúng tôi xem TV và đặt nhiều pizza, và chúng tôi gặp những người thú vị. Và, quan trọng hơn hết, chúng tôi tiết kiệm một khối tiền!" Dĩ nhiên chỉ một số lượng ít sản phẩm có giảm giá lớn. Dầu vậy, cửa hàng nào cũng đầy những sản phẩm giảm 10 đến 50 phần trăm - giảm cho người mua từ $10 đến $400 một món - để dụ dỗ người Mỹ mua hàng.

Không phải tất cả người Mỹ đều trân trọng việc mua sắm điên cuồng nàỵ Vị William Graham, mục sư của nhà thờ Risen Jesus, muốn đặt lai tên ngày thứ sáu đen tối. "Chúng tôi muốn gợi nhớ đến ngày Thứ Sáu của Jesus. Mọi người nên bắt đầu mùa với thái độ đúng. Mùa giáng sinh trở thàh mùa mua sắm. Chúng tôi muốn làm thành mùa trao tặng. Và chúng tôi không có nghĩa là tặng IPods, DVDs, ti vi màn hình phẳng, và những thứ tầm phào khác. Chúng tôi muốn nói là tặng lại quá khứ, suy nghĩ, và những bàn tay. Giúp một cụ già dọn nhà. Dạy trẻ em đọc. Thăm viếng người bệnh trong bệnh viện hay trong nhà y tá. Nhặc rác ở hàng xóm. Hiến máu chữ thập đỏ. Làm những công việc tự nguyện cho từ thiện. Tổ chức Giáng sinh bằng cách nhớ đến Jesus và quên ông già Noel."

Ngày sau ngày Lễ Tạ ơn đã trở thành một ngày mua sắm điên cuồng tại Hoa Kỳ. Đóng cửa suốt ngày Thứ Năm, hàng chuỗi các cửa hiệu trên toàn quốc mở cửa vào sáng sớm tinh mơ ngày Thứ Sáu. Một vài cửa hiệu mở cửa vào lúc 12 giờ 01 sáng Thứ Sáu, trong lúc các cửa hiệu khác mở cửa vào lúc 4 giờ sáng. Một số cửa hàng "không được nhộn nhịp"như Target trong năm vừa rồi, vào ngày Thứ Sáu mãi tận đến lúc 6 giờ sáng mới mở cửa. Từ Thứ Sáu cho đến ngày trước Giáng Sinh, đây là mùa khi giới kinh doanh thực hiện được 25% doanh thu hàng năm của mình. Mùa này đặt các doanh nghiệp "trong thế ăn nên làm ra"- có nghĩa là thu được nhiều lãi-trong cả năm.

Các phóng viên từ đài truyền hình trong khu vực phỏng vấn nhóm người đang cắm trại ngoài trời, ở phía trước các cửa hàng trước khi cửa hàng mở cửa vào ngày Thứ Sáu. Những người này kiên nhẫn xếp hàng chờ đợi để mua các sản phẩm được giảm giá 50% hoặc hơn nữa.

"Ồ, chúng tôi vui chơi đấy mà," một người cắm trại nói. "Chúng tôi mang trò chơi đến chơi, chúng tôi xem ti-vi và đặt rất nhiều bánh pi-za, và chúng tôi gặp gỡ nhiều người thú vị. Và, điều quan trọng nhất, chúng tôi tiết kiệm được nhiều tiền!" Các món hời, tất nhiên, chỉ có một số lượng rất ít các món hàng sẵn sàng cho việc giảm giá lớn nhất. Bất chấp điều đó, mỗi cửa hàng đều có số lượng lớn các mặt hàng khác với giá giảm từ từ 10 đến 50%-giúp tiết kiệm cho người mua hàng từ 10 đô-la đến 400 đô-la cho một món hàng-để lôi kéo người dân Mỹ đến mua sắm.

Không phải tất cả người dân Mỹ đều hiểu rõ giá trị của việc mua sắm điên cuồng này. Đức Cha William Graham, linh mục của Nhà thờ Risen Jesus, muốn đặt tên lại cho ngày Thứ Sáu ăn nên làm ra này. "Chúng tôi muốn gọi nó là Hãy ghi nhớ Ngày Thứ Sáu của Đức Chúa Jesus. Mọi người nên bắt đầu mùa này với một thái độ đúng đắn. Mùa Giáng Sinh đã trở thành mùa Mua sắm. Chúng tôi muốn biến nó trở thành Mùa của sự Dâng hiến. Và chúng tôi không có ý nói sẽ dâng hiến máy Ipod, đầu đĩa DVD, Ti-vi màn hình phẳng và các thứ tào lao khác. Chúng tôi muốn các bạn hãy mở rộng tấm lòng, trí tuệ, và đôi tay của mình. Hãy giúp một bà cụ già yếu lau chùi căn nhà. Hãy dạy một đứa trẻ cách đọc chữ. Hãy đến thăm người ốm đau tại bệnh viện và các nhà dưỡng lão. Hãy dọn dẹp rác rưởi ở nhà láng giềng. Hãy hiến máu cho Hội Hồng Thập tự. Hãy làm tình nguyện viên cho các tổ chức từ thiện. Hãy đón chào Giáng Sinh bằng cách nhớ đến Chúa Jesus và quên Ông già Nô-en đi.

@HoangThiQuynhNhu

don’t open their doors on Friday until 6 a .m.

...vào ngày Thứ Sáu không mở cửa cho đến lúc 6 giờ sáng.

ndh thấy nên dịch là: "... mãi đến tận 6 giờ sáng mới mở cửa." thì nó thuận tai hơn chị ạ.

We mean giving your back,...

ndh nghĩ nên dịch là hãy mở lòng ra. Được không chị? Vì ndh nghĩ nghĩa bóng của từ BACK trong bài này là đừng quay lưng lại với nỗi đau hay nỗi khổ trên đời.
