Friday, the 27th of November 2015 is the 331th day in 2015 and in the 48th calendar week.
General Events:
International You´re Welcome Day 2015
November 27, 2015 in the World
You’re Welcome Day encourages us to simply say “You’re welcome”. It helps to put manners back into society.
 This very special day comes the day after Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving Day we say “Thanks” for what we have.  So, it only seems natural, that “You’re Welcome” immediately follows a thank you.
Participating in this day can happen anywhere that you are, and anywhere that you go today. Just speak a profusion of “thank you’s” for even the slightest of  reasons. When you say thank you, make sure to be sincere. It will go a long ways.
It is very likely that this special day originated on a blog in 2002. The blog was posted on blogs.salon.com, declaring that day, the day after Thanksgiving, as You’re Welcome Day. Unfortunately, the creator did not identify themselves.

Native American Heritage Day
November 27, 2015 in the USA
Native American Heritage Day is a civil holiday observed on the day after Thanksgiving in the United States.
President George W. Bush signed into law legislation introduced by Congressman Joe Baca (D-Rialto), to designate the Friday after Thanksgiving as Native American Heritage Day. The Native American Heritage Day Bill was supported by the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) and 184 federally recognized tribes, and designates Friday, November 28, 2008, as a day to pay tribute to Native Americans for their many contributions to the United States.
The Native American Heritage Day Bill encourages Americans of all backgrounds to observe Friday, November 28, 2008, as Native American Heritage Day, through appropriate ceremonies and activities. It also encourages public elementary and secondary schools to enhance student understanding of Native Americans by providing classroom instructions focusing on their history, achievements, and contributions.
The House of Representatives originally passed H.J. Res. 62 on November 13, 2007. The bill was passed with technical adjustments by unanimous consent in the United States Senate on September 22, 2008. Then, on September 26, 2008, the House of Representatives unanimously voted to pass the legislation again, this time including the adjustments from the Senate. The legislation was signed into public law by the President on October 8, 2008.
Some individual states have also taken legislative action to recognize this day. For example, Maryland established this day in 2008 under the name American Indian Heritage Day.

Black Friday 2015
November 27, 2015 in the USA
Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. The term dates back to at least 1966, although its usage was primarily on the East coast. The term has become more common in other parts of the country since 2000. Because Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday occurs between the 23rd and the 29th of November. According to Reuters, in 2007 135 million people participated in the Black Friday shopping rush.
Black Friday is not an official holiday, but as many workers have the day off as part of the Thanksgiving holiday, this increases the number of potential shoppers. Retailers often decorate for the Christmas and holiday season weeks beforehand. Many retailers open extremely early, with most of the retailers typically opening at 5 AM or even earlier. Some of the larger retailers (depending on the location) such as Sears, Best Buy, Macy’s, Toys “R” Us, and Walmart have been reported to open as early as midnight on the start of Black Friday in localized areas and remain open for 24 hours throughout the day until midnight the following Saturday. Upon opening, retailers offer doorbuster deals and loss leaders to draw people to their stores. Although Black Friday, as the first shopping day after Thanksgiving, has served as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season at least since the start of the modern Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1924, the term “Black Friday” has been traced back only to the 1960s.
The term “Black Friday” may have originated in Philadelphia, where was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.  More recently, merchants and the media have used it instead to refer to the beginning of the period in which retailers go from being in the red (i.e., posting a loss on the books) to being in the black (i.e., turning a profit).

International Buy Nothing Day
November 27, 2015 in the World
The Buy Nothing Day (BND) is an international day of protest against consumerism observed by social activists. Typically celebrated the Friday after American Thanksgiving in North America and the following day internationally, in 2015 the date is November 27. It was founded by Vancouver artist Ted Dave and subsequently promoted by Adbusters magazine, based in Canada.
Various gatherings, shenanigans, and forms of protest have been used on Buy Nothing Day to draw attention to the perceived problem of over-consumption. The first Buy Nothing Day was organized in Vancouver in September 1992 “as a day for society to examine the issue of over-consumption.” In 1997, it was moved to the Friday after American Thanksgiving, also called “BlackFriday“, which is one of the 10 busiest shopping days in the United States.
