'Red Friday' to Bring Deals for Asian Apple Customers This Friday
Apple has begun informing customers in several of its Asian markets regarding this Friday's one-day shopping event in celebration of the Lunar New Year. Termed "Red Friday", the event is similar to Apple's Black Friday shopping deals in many areas of the world, where the company offers discounts on a number of different items including Macs, iPads, and iPods, as well as accessories.
According to 9to5Mac, the Red Friday deals will be offered through Apple's online stores in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The deals will be also available in the company's brick-and-mortar stores in China and Hong Kong.
The event also falls during the same week that Apple celebrated the new year in Japan with its annual Lucky Bag promotion, allowing customers to buy bags containing mystery Apple and third-party products at a discounted price of $430.

I am so sorry for your loss.
No, we didn't get any special deals around Thanksgiving. The last Thursday in November is not a special day anywhere outside the USA.
One year, we got some deals around Dec 22, the Winter Solstice, which is quite a significant feast day in China and Hong Kong, although not a holiday per se.
The last few years, there have been offers a few weeks before Chinese New Year, which is easily the biggest holiday in the Chinese calendar. It's basically Christmas and Thanksgiving rolled into one.
 And possibly other places depending on your beliefs.
$430 is indeed a gamble but the items will always have a combine value of more than $430.
The fun is on who will get the best deals worth way higher.
Same pricing format in Singapore. Ends with 88. Huat ah!
