While American shoppers wrestled over sales items as another Black Friday swept through the stores, their Canadian neighbors on the contrary were polite and gracious.

Serene scenes at a Best Buy in Nova Scotia and another in Montreal as Black Friday sales took place on November 25 demonstrated Canada’s reputation for civility.

With no pushing or elbowing, shoppers calmly entered the stores, where they were greeted by the applause of store workers. The chaotic, consuming crowds shown in U.S. stores were nowhere to be seen.

People were quick to share Canada-related jokes on social media as Black Friday got underway.
