Planet Earth is part of the solar system, is the largest terrestrial planet, formed about 4.57 billion years ago and is the densest planet in the entire solar system. Read general information about planet Earth.


Planet Earth revolves around the sun in 365.26 days, and this period is known as one year. During all this time, the Earth rotates about its axis about 366.26 times. During gravity, the Earth interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and Moon, the Earth's only natural satellite.


Seasons appear on Earth because its axis of rotation is inclined relative to its orbital plane. The gravitational interaction between the Earth and the Moon stabilizes the Earth's orientation on its axis and gradually slows down its rotation.


The Earth's surface is 71% covered with water, mainly by the oceans, and the remaining 29% is made up of continents and islands that, along with other rivers and water sources, contribute to the hydrosphere.

The name of the planet Earth does not derive from Greek or Roman mythology, as is the case with the other planets that were named after gods and goddesses from Greco-Roman mythology. The word "earth" comes from the Latin word "pavimentum", which means "paved earth" or "level", "floor", "paved road", "smooth place", "pavement", "mosaic" or "weft".


Since its formation, the Earth has undergone many geological and biological processes. The Earth's atmosphere and oceans were formed by volcanic activity and expulsion. From here, water vapor condensed into oceans amplified with water and ice from asteroids, comets and protoplants.


More than 3.5 billion years ago, the Earth's magnetic field stabilized, and this prevented the solar wind from scattering the atmosphere.


Approximately 4.5 billion years old, the Earth was formed when a cloud of dust collapsed due to gravity, and like planets such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars, the planet Earth is a rocky, central core. which is surrounded by a mantle and a solid crust.

The shape is approximately oblique spheroidal and, due to the rotation, the Earth is flattened at the poles and bulging around the equator. Its diameter at the equator is 43 kilometers, larger than the pole-pole diameter.


The main deviations from the Earth's surface are: Mount Everest, 8,850 meters above sea level and the Marianas Pit, 10,924 meters below sea level.


The Earth's mass consists mainly of iron (32.1%), oxygen (30.1%), silicon (15.1%), magnesium (13.9%), sulfur (2.9%), nickel (1 , 8%), calcium 1.5%), aluminum (1.4%), the remaining 1.2% consisting of small amounts of other elements. Due to mass segregation, it is estimated that the core consists mainly of iron (88.8%), with smaller amounts of nickel (5.8%), sulfur (4.5%) and less than 1% trace elements.


The total area of ​​the Earth is about 510 million square kilometers, of which 70.8% and 361.13 square kilometers are below sea level and covered with ocean, the remaining 29.2% and 148.94 million square kilometers, respectively it is not covered by water and consists of mountains, plains, deserts, plateaus and other landforms.

Due to the swelling of the earth at the equator, the summit of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador (20,700 feet or 6,310 meters) is the farthest point from the center of the Earth. Thus, the mountain claims the title of being "the highest point on Earth" (although Mount Everest is still the highest point above sea level). Mt. Chimorazo is an extinct volcano and is located about a degree south of the equator.


While at sea level, the boiling point of water is 212 F, it changes if you are higher than that. How much does it change? For every 500 feet of elevation increase, the boiling point decreases by one degree. Thus, in a city 5,000 meters above sea level, the water boils at 202 F.


The fourth most populous country in the world has the largest Muslim population. About 87% of Indonesia's population is Muslim; Thus, with a population of 216 million, Indonesia is home to about 188 million Muslims. The religion of Islam spread to Indonesia in the Middle Ages.

Because the longitude lines converge at the North and South Poles, it is almost impossible (and very impractical) to determine which time zone you are in based on longitude.


Therefore, researchers in the Arctic and Antarctic regions of the Earth typically use the time zone associated with their research stations. For example, because almost all flights to Antarctica and the South Pole come from New Zealand, New Zealand time is the most common time zone in Antarctica.


The longest river in Russia and Europe is the Volga River, which flows entirely in Russia for 3,685 km (2,290 miles). Its source is in the Valdai Hills, near the town of Rzhev, and flows into the Caspian Sea in southern Russia.

At one point, in recent decades, someone started an idea to alert people that population growth was out of control, saying that most people who have ever lived were alive today. Well, that's a gross overestimation.


Most studies place the total number of human beings who have ever lived between 60 and 120 billion. Since the world's population is currently only 7 billion, the percentage of people who have lived and are alive today is only 5% to 10%.

66-facts-about-planet-earth-minus-8920c-in-antarctica-plus-5670c-in-california

Modern people know a lot about our planet, especially now, when it is possible to travel around the world or, if this is not possible, look into any corner of the globe using the Internet. And even if geography seemed a little boring to someone at school, geography seemed a little boring to someone; in fact, it is worth it to get interested in it, especially if you get acquainted with curious facts about our planet tied to geographical coordinates.

 

How much gold is hidden in the bowels of the Earth, a city with one inhabitant, and other interesting facts

 

What might make these facts enjoyable? We answer: to some extent, disbelief - when you want to google this or that information from our list to verify its integrity personally. On the other hand, this is instead a plus - and it will be remembered better, and there will be no reason to doubt what you have read. Yes, and you can always shine in a conversation, giving the impression of an erudite person. But first, could you look at what facts we at Bemorepanda have found for you?

 

1. Canada has the largest number of lakes - more than 879,000 of them.

Second in size, but first in the number of lakes, Canada surpasses any other country in the number of lakes. The study found that Canada has the most lakes per square kilometer in the entire world. Canada contains 62% of the world's 1.42 million lakes that are larger than 0.1 square kilometers. — nature.com

 

2. You can get inside a volcanic magma chamber in Iceland

Iceland is a country of volcanoes. If you ever visit this island, be sure to visit the volcanic magma chamber open to tourists. The magma chamber of a volcano is often referred to as its heart. That's where all the "bad things" happen. The only notable exception to this is the Thrihnukagigur volcano, where the magma in the chamber appears to have disappeared. — insidethevolcano.com

 

3. Lions Are Extinct In 26 African Countries

The kings of the jungle, lions once ruled the African continent and were even present on the European continent before being driven out. According to official figures, lions have become extinct not only in Europe, but also in 26 African countries. It is sad to imagine how much of the lion population was wiped out. — PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES

 

4. There are no mosquitoes in Iceland

Who loves mosquitoes? Probably no one. Luckily for you, there are none in Iceland. Although they are widespread in other countries, they do not exist in Iceland. Due to the cold climate, mosquitoes cannot enter Iceland and lay their eggs on the ground, which prevents them from colonizing the island. — why.is

 

5. There are more ancient pyramids in Sudan than in Egypt.

There are many interesting facts connected with the pyramids. The Pyramids of Giza are just some of the oldest pyramids in the world. In fact, there are more ancient pyramids in Sudan than in Egypt.

 

Apparently, there are 138 pyramids in Egypt, and 200-255 pyramids in Sudan. Interestingly, the pyramids in the latter were not built by the ancient Egyptians, who may have moved further south. — sciencealert.com

 

6. There are more caves in Kentucky than anywhere else on earth.

While Kentucky today may be known as the birthplace of Kentucky whiskey, it also hosts more caves than any other place on Earth. The longest cave system, known as Mammoth Cave National Park, is located on the east coast of this state. So grab your gear, get your tickets, and set out to explore (with a guide, of course) just how deep this state stretches. — nps.gov

 

7. Peru has floating islands in the lake

Seeing an island in the ocean is common, but what about a floating island in a lake? Well, there are several in Peru. The highest navigable lake in the world, Titicaca, has a small area on which the mobile islands of Uros are located. It is safe to assume that there is nothing like it anywhere else on the planet. peruforless.com

 

8. The largest desert in the world - Antarctica

Is Antarctica the largest desert? Something is wrong here. Sometimes the desert consists of more than just sand. Deserts can be described as arid places where it is impossible to survive for long periods of time. According to this description, Antarctica is home to one of the largest deserts on earth. Interesting geographical facts like these only demonstrate how unique Antarctica is as a continent. — britannica.com

 

9. Peru is about 2.9 times bigger than Sweden

Located on the continent of South America, you might be surprised how huge Peru is compared to a large European country like Sweden. Peru is about 1,285,216 square kilometers larger than Sweden, which is about 450,295 square kilometers. It makes you wonder how small Sweden is. — mylifeelsewhere.com

 

10. There is a supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park

A simple volcano can be intimidating on its own, but a supervolcano? This is really scary and amazing. As the first natural park in the US, Yellowstone is special. Most of the park is located on top of the supervolcano.

 

While the last time the Yellowstone supervolcano erupted was over 640,000 years ago, one might just wonder how much power lurks beneath this park. yellowstonepark.com

 

11. Istanbul is the only major city located on two continents

Istanbul, located on the border of the Black and Mediterranean Seas, is the largest city in Turkey, but not the capital. It is also located on two different continents - Europe and Asia. The city is united by a system of bridges, but both sides of the city are still completely different. The European side has banks and historical buildings, while the Asian side is quieter. amusingplanet.com

 

12. The longest flight in the world lasts 19 hours

Nobody likes to fly or drive for a long time. Because it becomes too boring to sit in one place and just wait. The longest air route in the world, from Singapore to New York, will be operated by Singapore Airlines from October. The route is about 15,322 km long, which is quite a long flight! — forbes.com

 

13. Japan's Aomori gets over 792cm of snow every year.

Since Japan is an island nation, the weather there gets crazy from time to time. Most of the nearly 0.8 m of snow that falls in Aomori City each year falls between November and April. Due to the city's low winter temperatures, headwinds accelerate cloud formation, resulting in significant precipitation that falls as snow rather than rain. Such incredible facts only stimulate the tourism sector of this city. — tripsavvy.com

 

14. The deepest place on Earth is the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean

The Mariana Trench is a deep-sea trench that runs along the bottom of the western part of the North Pacific Ocean. This is the deepest depression that exists on Earth and is located mainly to the east and south of the Mariana Islands. Its depth is 11034 meters.

 

The Challenger Deep, a small steep-walled valley at the bottom of the main depression southwest of Guam, is where the deepest depths are found. Fun facts like these might make you want to take a dip in the ocean! — nationalgeographic.org

 

15. The full name of Bangkok consists of 163 letters.

While the Swedish city "O" has the title of the shortest city name, Bangkok can be the title of the city with the longest name of 163 letters. Ready?

Try to remember it. —theculturetrip.com

 

16. The coldest temperature ever recorded was -89.2 °C (-128.6 °F)

While it can be cold in Russia, how cold can it be on Earth as a whole? Vostok station in Antarctica reported the lowest air temperature ever measured on the surface of the planet on July 21, 1983 at 02:45 UT: -89.2°C (-128.56°F). Because of the high susceptibility to marine air mass intrusion, as Rossby wave activity shifts across the peninsula, surface temperatures at Vostok station fluctuate greatly in winter. nora.nerc.ac.uk

 

17. Hurricanes hit China more than any other country.

The fact that China's typhoon season lasts all year makes it the country most prone to hurricanes. Typhoon Rammasun was the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in China. When it hit China in 2014, its speed was 257 km/h. Since 1970, more than 127 hurricanes have hit the Chinese mainland. They caused significant damage to the developing economy of the country. — borgenproject.org

 

18. 42 buildings in New York have their own zip codes

The island is home to 4 million people, so a huge amount of mail passes through Manhattan every day. The postcode system is needed to complete the enormous job of getting all the mail to where it needs to go. It is interesting to note that 42 buildings in Manhattan have unique zip codes. — convene.com

 

19. The most remote place on Earth - Point Nemo

When the closest person to you is an astronaut in space, then you know that you are quite far from civilization. Point Nemo is as far away as it can be. Whenever they fly over Point Nemo, astronauts on the International Space Station, which is 415.211 km away, are closest to that point. — allthatsinteresting.com

 

20. The red rock of Uluru in Australia is bigger than you think.

Stones! They are everywhere, but Australia is probably the largest. At 863 meters above sea level, Uluru/Ayers Rock rises 348 meters above the surrounding desert plain. Researcher Ernest Giles, South Africa's first deputy, is home to a complex of seasonal waterfalls known as the Tugela Falls in Royal Natal's Drakensberg National Park. It consists of five free-falling cascades, the largest of which is 411 m. The total height of the cascade is 933 m. It may be the highest waterfall on Earth. praguemonitor.com

 

22. The diameter of Australia is 600 km larger than that of the Moon.

The diameter of Australia is 600 km (372.82 miles) larger than the diameter of the Moon. While Australia spans over 4,000 km (2,485,485 miles) from east to west, the moon's diameter is only 3,400 km (2,112,662 miles). — www.awol.com.au

 

23. The Diomede Islands, located at a distance of 4 km from each other, are 20 hours away from each other

Time zones can be weird and create strange situations. The Diomede Islands are separated by only 4 km (2.4 miles), but due to the fact that the International Date Line runs through them, they are not only in different time zones, but also 20 hours apart. — www.atlasobscura.com

 

24. The Dead Sea is sinking

Shrinking seas are one of the worst side effects of global warming. The Dead Sea is one of them. According to studies, the surface of the salty sea sinks by more than 91.44 cm per year. — bbc.com

 

25. The world's largest war memorial is a road

As the First World War came to an end, many Australians returned home and took local jobs to support themselves and their families. Some have been building roads along the coast of Australia. One of the roads, built in 1932, with a total length of 241,402 km, became a memorial dedicated to the fallen soldiers, called the "Great Ocean Road". adb.anu.edu.au

30. Mauna Kea above Everest

Everest is called the highest mountain because of the highest peak, but it is not the highest mountain.

41. Russia has the coldest inhabited place on Earth

We humans tend to live where the sun shines and the weather is nice, but the inhabitants of this place seem to have a different outlook on life. The coldest temperature ever recorded in Oymyakon, also known as the "Pole of Cold", was -71.2°C.

 

In the 1920s and 1930s, reindeer herders stopped in the village, which is now home to 500 people, to water the herds from the thermal spring. Ironically, due to the nearby hot spring, Oymyakon means "non-freezing water". — dailymail.co.uk

 

42. There is no rain in the Dry Valleys

The dry valleys in Antarctica, where there has been no rain for about 2 million years, are the driest regions on Earth.

45. You will only find narwhals in the wild in Canada, Denmark (Greenland), Norway and Russia

In Arctic waters off the coast of Canada, Greenland, Norway and Russia, narwhals live their entire lives. The Baffin Bay and Davis Strait region is home to most of the world's narwhals, spending up to five months hibernating under the sea ice there. — worldwildlife.org

 

46. There are underwater lakes and rivers

Lakes and rivers are found not only on the surface, but also below us. As salt water rises from the seabed, it dissolves the surrounding salt layer and collects in the resulting depressions. So at the bottom of the ocean, underwater lakes and rivers are formed. Unique fish live in water bodies within a few kilometers of each other

 

Looking at the map, you might think that Australia and New Zealand are practically neighbors, only a few thousand small steps apart.

Being one of the highest mountains not only on the Asian continent, but also in the world, Everest has a height of 8,848 m, but it is not the closest mountain to the Moon. Since the Earth is not the perfect circle we all imagine, some points are much closer to the Moon than others. Since the Earth's largest bulge is just one degree south of the equator, the summit of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador, which is located there, is the highest point above the center of the planet. With this in mind, this means that Mount Chimborazo is closer to the moon and stars than Everest's highest peak. oceanservice.noaa.gov

 

49. Iceland is growing at 5 centimeters a year

As one of the youngest land masses in the world, Iceland is home to some of the most active volcanoes. The island was formed by a huge volcanic fissure in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates collide. Even now, the country is expanding at about 5 cm per year as it expands at the collision points of two tectonic plates. — iceland.is

 

50. The Sargasso Sea is the only sea in the world that does not have a land border.

The only sea in the world that is completely surrounded by sea is in the North Atlantic Ocean. Its northern, western, southern and eastern boundaries are formed by the Gulf Stream, the North Atlantic Equatorial Current and the Canary Current. Like a land coastline, these currents create a gyre that circles the Sargasso Sea in a clockwise direction. — www.atlasobscura.com

 

51. Africa spans all four hemispheres

The world can be divided into four different parts, known as hemispheres. Africa is located in such a way that it is in all four hemispheres, which makes it the only continent of the four main ones. — worldatlas.com

 

52. Water covers most of the planet, but most of it cannot be used by humans.

Although there is water in the oceans, seas, lakes and rivers, people cannot use all of it. We can only use fresh water. Fresh water makes up a very small fraction of the total amount of water on the globe. Although water covers nearly 70% of the earth's surface, only 2.5% of it is fresh water.

 

Only 1% of our fresh water is readily available, and most of it is in glaciers and snowfields. In fact, only 0.007% of the world's water is used to hydrate and nourish 8 billion people. — nationalgeographic.com

 

53. It's snowing in Hawaii

On the tropical island of Hawaii, snow falls from time to time, but only on the tops of the highest peaks of the Big Island, and Maui is covered with it. The snowstorms that return every winter usually only cover mountains above 11,000 feet (3.35 km), so snow can only be seen on Mauna Kea (13,803 feet - 4.2 km) and Mauna Loa (13,680 feet). – 4.1 km). — popsci.com

 

54. There are over 300 indigenous tribes in Brazil.

There are people in our world who prefer to live in tribes. Approximately 305 tribes, or about 900,000 people, make up 0.4% of Brazil's current population. For the indigenous population, the government has recognized 690 districts, which is almost 13% of the territory of Brazil. This protected area is located almost entirely in the Amazon. survivalinternational.org

 

55. Mawsynram in India is the wettest place on Earth

The village of Mawsynram in northeast India is the wettest place on earth, averaging an incredible 11,871 millimeters of rainfall per year.

Due to the unusual shape and orography of the catchment, moisture from the Bay of Bengal is concentrated here, causing heavy rains. — worldatlas.com

 

56. The Caribbean is the deepest of the seven seas.

Jack Sparrow's secrets aren't the only dark depths hidden in the Caribbean. With a maximum depth of 7,686 m below sea level, the Caribbean Sea is the deepest sea in the world and the second deepest sea in the Atlantic Ocean.

Indonesia is also one of the largest pineapple producers in the world. — worldatlas.com

 

59. Polar bears live only in Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland and some northern islands belonging to Norway.

The sea ice that forms over the open waters where their prey, the seals, is essential to the survival of polar bears. Because they are good swimmers, polar bears can travel long distances between shore and sea ice. Polar bears often swim between floating ice islands when the ice breaks off. Currently, polar bears can be found in Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland and the islands of Northern Norway. — nwf.org

 

60. The Pacific is shrinking

The world's largest Pacific Ocean shrinks by several centimeters every year. This is due to the fact that the tectonic plates on which America is located are shifting to the west.

 

61. Earth has enough gold to cover itself with it.

Gold is not only shiny and valuable, but also lies deep in the earth where we cannot get it. According to modern scientific theories, there is enough gold in the Earth's core to cover the surface of the planet with a layer of pure gold 4 meters thick. — westcoastplacer.com

 

62. Middle East imports sand from Australia

Australia and Saudi Arabia are two desert countries, but one exports sand and the other imports it. Saudi Arabia is an importer of sand from Australia due to their huge construction needs. This demand is only growing, and Australia is happy to try. — dailytelegraph.com.au

 

63. Egypt is located in both Africa and Asia

Egypt is called a "transcontinental nation". It is located in both Asia and Africa. However, since most of Egypt is in Africa, most people think of Africa when talking about Egypt. Asia contains another small part of Egypt. This is the Sinai Peninsula, located in the southwest of the country. — furtherafrica.com

 

64. There are underwater volcanoes

The Earth's most active volcanic systems are submerged in water that is typically 2,600 m deep. It is estimated that 75% of the annual volcanic activity is produced by the global mid-ocean ridge system below the oceans.

 

It is estimated that lava erupted over an area of 3 cubic kilometers. The edges of the new oceanic plates are formed by magma and lava, which also provide heat and chemicals to some of the planet's most unusual and exotic organisms. — Martin Speight, Peter Henderson

 

65. Russia has 11.0% of the earth's land

Throughout history, Russia has been in the top 5 countries by land area and has stayed there for a long time. At present, even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia is still the largest country in the world. With a total area of 17,098,242 square kilometers and a land area of 16,376,870 square kilometers, or 11% of the total 148,940,000 square kilometers

10-things-you-didnt-know-about-thanksgiving-in-canada

Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving today. Usually an occasion to reunite with family or friends, this year the holiday is affected by the sanitary measures required by the authorities in an attempt to stop the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bemorepanda is here to surprise you.

 

Here are some things you may not know about this Canadian holiday.

 

1. The first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in Canada in 1578, when the English sailor Martin Frobisher arrived on Baffin Island with his crew. They celebrated with a dinner the fact that they arrived safely at their destination.

 

2. From 1921 to 1930, Thanksgiving Day was combined with Armistice Day (now Remembrance Day), celebrated on November 11th. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October 1931, except in 1935, when there was a conflict between this holiday and the date of the general election.

 

3. In 1957, Thanksgiving became a national holiday. The Canadian parliament declared Monday the second of October as a day off to thank "for the abundant harvest with which Canada has been blessed."

 

4. Although federally recognized, Thanksgiving Day in Canada is not a day off in Prince Edward, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

 

5. Why is turkey eaten on this day? Nobody knows for sure. There are many theories about how the turkey became the predominant meal on Thanksgiving, including the fact that this bird could be easily found and is large enough to feed a family.

 

6. 20.2 million turkeys are sold annually in Canada, according to Statistics Canada. The data is from 2018. A little over 390 million dollars are the annual revenues made by farms that grow turkeys.

 

7. On Thanksgiving Day 2019, 2.5 million whole turkeys were bought by Canadians, the equivalent of 39% of sales during the year, according to the Turkey Growers Association.

 

8. But Thanksgiving is not the day to eat the most turkey. At Christmas 2019, 2.7 million turkeys were bought by Canadians, equivalent to 42% of annual sales.

 

9. 64.3% of all cranberries consumed in Canada come from Quebec and 38.9% of apples consumed come from Ontario.

 

10. The United States celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November. One possible explanation is that the harvest season is earlier in Canada, due to the colder climate than in the United States.

what-is-the-history-of-black-friday-15-fun-and-interesting-facts-you-should-know-bemorepanda

This is a huge traditional sale, a fabulous time when all self-respecting stores are competing to see who has more discounts. Black Friday began in the USA as a great excuse to buy gifts before the Christmas holidays. This is the first Friday after Thanksgiving and falls between November 23rd and 30th. At this time there were always sales, and in the 60s the term "Black Friday" itself appeared.

 

Over time, the wave was picked up by the whole world: the more competition, the more discounts that attract even more people. So this snowball is rolling, causing a crazy stir. Someone needs gifts, someone has been waiting the whole year for the opportunity to buy an expensive thing, and someone enterprisingly buys everything and then sells it at auctions at a higher price.

People wait patiently for Black Friday for months, and then all at once pile on stores and grab goods in an hour. And if the Internet sites at this time simply hang on the number of people, then in real shopping centers madness, crush, assault and other types of simple human fun are happening. Bemorepanda prepared some interesting facts about Black Friday for you:

 

1. In 2020, Black Friday falls on November 29th, which marks the beginning of the biggest sale of the year worldwide. Some stores prefer to open early, and some even agree to work around the clock.

 

2. Aliexpress is perhaps the most popular store during the promotion days, discounts up to 70% on already cheap goods attract crowds of buyers.

 

3. eBay this year promises discounts of up to 50%, you can buy anything on sale: from a food processor to sports equipment, the main thing is to pay attention to the delivery terms.

 

4. For the first time this term sounded on September 24, 1869 during a panic in the US stock market: then the gold rate collapsed by 30%, ruining many small businesses.

 

5. In the fifties of the XX century, severe traffic jams on the roads of Philadelphia, which began after Thanksgiving Day, were dubbed Black Friday - the traffic police could not cope with the traffic collapse.

 

 

6. Massive sales after Thanksgiving have been (and continue to be) a hefty profit.

 

7. In America, sales had an additional meaning: sellers not only got rid of surplus goods in store for Thanksgiving, but also attracted those who wanted to shop early for the Christmas holidays.

 

8. Many sellers sin by raising prices in early to mid-November in order to effectively lower them on the day of the sale (and achieve those same ninety percent discounts). The total discount is obtained either much less than the declared one, or even absent altogether.

 

9.In 2018, according to the estimates of the National Retail Federation of the United States, on Black Friday itself, Americans made $ 6.2 billion (23.6% more than in 2017), and just over the weekend 165 million people were shopping.

 

10. Despite the proliferation and increase of online shopping, many shoppers still prefer physical stores, and more than half of those who were flattered by last year's sales were shopping both in stores and online.

 

 

11. The fashion industry is still more likely to be in the rearguard of Black Friday in terms of the number of buyers and, of course, the amount of the check. For example, consumers are projected to spend, on average, just over $ 250 each on clothing and footwear (by comparison, the average furniture bill is likely to be over $ 700).

 

12. True, while brands like H&M, Topshop and Mango offer discounts on almost the entire assortment, then for Farfetch and Net-a-Porter Black Friday becomes a reason to sell off the rest: special discounts apply only to the Sale department.

 

13. In recent years, Amazon, Argos, Boots, Currys, Debenhams, Halfords, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Littlewoods, Morrisons, Tesco and Very have been among the most active members with the best discounts.

 

14. Which states that 87% of Black Friday special pricing items can be purchased for the same price or even lower at other times of the year.

 

15.When shopping, please note the explanation for the special offer. Sometimes stores simply indicate the price "was-now", where the product was sold at the old price almost six months ago, but not yesterday.

 

On the one hand, Black Friday really looks like a thoughtless celebration of consumerism - and therefore aggravates environmental problems, for which the fashion industry is also responsible. On the other hand, it is possible to preserve sanity even during total stunning sales. Glossy magazines also call for this - with materials in the spirit of "What timeless things to buy at a discount" or "How to assemble a basic wardrobe for a sale." “Trends are cool,” admits Who What Wear, but warns that they won't work in a wardrobe unless you have a solid base to pair them. "And it doesn't have to be expensive."

 

There is nothing wrong with discounts in and of themselves, and even more, it is a great opportunity for many buyers to "jump" into a more expensive and high-quality clothing segment and choose durable items made from sustainable materials and in compliance with the principles of sustainable development. You can deliberately support brands that refuse discounts in favor of charitable initiatives. Finally, a big sale could be a good non-sale solution.
