Black Friday

Date When Celebrated : Day after Thanksgiving

Black Friday, or Retail Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving. It is one of the two busiest shopping days of the year. In case you didn't know, the other busiest shopping day is the day after Christmas, when throngs of shoppers, on holiday vacation, mob the stores to use gift certificates they received, and to exchange merchandise. 

Why Black??

In the world of accountants, red signifies a loss, and black signifies a profit. For many retailers, the Christmas holiday sales season  represents one half to three quarters of their annual sales. Often, retailers are losing money , until holiday sales begin. Holiday sales formally begin on the day after Thanksgiving. So, Black Friday represents that turning point,. from a loss towards big profits! 

We hope you enjoy Black Friday almost as much as the retailers do!  

Wild as it may seem, there is another interesting special day, celebrated on the day after Thanksgiving. It is called Buy Nothing Day.


Origin of Black Friday:

We did not find the creator of this special day. It was most likely coined by someone in the retail trade, or someone reporting on the events of this big shopping day.
