It's that time of year again. People are out shopping for Black Friday deals while others sit back and talk about it all on the internet. Black Friday Canada tweets are so funny as people react to the annual shopping day. It's ranged from people loving the calmness the event has in Canada to people hating it altogether. 

In case you didn't know already, it isn't actually a Canadian thing. The massive sales and deals came up north from the U.S. and now we are obsessed with the annual event.

There are so many bargains and so many retailers who are offering customers huge discounts.

If you're looking to find any steals, the possibilities are endless. Starbucks has special offers, Best Buy opened up stores extra early, Swoop is selling flights for cheap and Costco even had toilet paper on sale as part of its early Black Friday event. 

While people are out there shopping deals and saving money, some have taken to Twitter to talk about the yearly sales in Canada and it's hilarious.

People have been comparing Black Friday in Canada and the U.S. like how polite it is here, confusion about the event, and complaining about why people even care about it here.

Here are 13 reactions to the event in the Great White North.

Battle Ready Mom

The differences between the two countries are obviously pretty massive if this mom literally hugged their child before heading out to shop for deals.

But it's hilarious that this mom acted like she's going into battle. Stay strong, mom.

The Most Polite

So Canadian. A video from 2016 showed customers at a Best Buy in Canada walking in on Black Friday in an orderly fashion (some with Tim Hortons in hand) and the staff was even clapping for them. It doesn't get more Canadian than that.

A Sale On Snowshoes

Classic dad move that actually perfectly encapsulates what this day usually ends up being — a bunch of people buying things they don't need.

Shipping Ruins Everything

Ah, the eternal struggle of things not shipping to Canada. When will the madness stop? When will this person get their Cher perfume?

Green Friday?

A very American reaction to Canada's Black Friday sales. But the answer is yes.

The Biggest Non-Holiday Ever

A survey by the Retail Council of Canada said that 43% of Canadians plan to shop on November 29, compared to 34% on Boxing Day.

It's really not a surprise though. Why pay full price for Christmas gifts when you can get them on sale a month ahead of time?

Easy Friday

Such a Candian experience. Almost as Canadian as having "hockey" in your Twitter handle.

It's Just Better Here

We don't imagine that shopping in the U.S. is like a Spartan battle but it's most likely less polite than it is here up here.

Sleeping In & Still Scoring Sales

Who wants to wake up early and risk getting stepped on by crazed shoppers? Not this person and probably not anybody, to be honest. Another win for our home and native land.

Black Fri-Month

Not everyone is pleased when Black Friday rolls around every year and we can respect that. We've all had those "yell into the void" moments.

The Apologetic Lines

If you've never experienced something like this are you even living in Canada?

Black Friday Boycott

Now, this is something everyone should be on board with. 

Stop Trying To Make Fetch Happen

If you use a Mean Girls gif in your tweet trash-talking Black Friday you automatically win that day. Four for you Glen Coco, you go Glen Coco.

Even though there have been some lines at shopping malls like the Eaton Centre in Toronto, we have yet to reach the level of madness that comes with the holiday south of the border.
