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. The stellar growth of online shopping has seriously affected the impact of Black Friday shopping. With the advent of COVID-19 in 2020, shopping traffic on Black Friday much further lessens in store sales traffic on Black Friday. Most retail businesses now promote Black Friday deals in advance of the actual date, with some stores promoting Black Friday deals all month long.
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!
