Starting in December, some malls here hold the so called midnight sales where the malls stay open until midnight, some even close shop after midnight. But it is usually held on Friday and Saturday nights. Aside from the usual stores, there are booths and kiosks in the middle of the aisles, giving one an impression of an overload of brand new mostly clothing items. Sometimes we go to those midnight sales not really for the discounted items but only for the experience. Malls here normally close at 10 pm and being open after that hour is like a phenomenon that people here try to sample.
