Black Friday Is This Week



Have you heard of Black Friday? Well it is the day after Thanksgiving Day in America and it fall on the Friday after the fourth Thursday in November. It is a very busy shopping day and is a holiday in some states.


Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days in the USA. There are two popular theories as to why the day after Thanksgiving Day is called Black Friday. One theory is that the wheels of vehicles in heavy traffic on the day after Thanksgiving Day left many black markings on the road surface, leading to the term Black Friday.

The other theory is that the term Black Friday comes from an old way of recording business accounts. Losses were recorded in red ink and profits in black ink. Many businesses, particularly small businesses, started making profits prior to Christmas. Many hoped to start showing a profit, marked in black ink, on the day after Thanksgiving Day.


Black Friday is unofficially the start of the christmas shopping season in America. Almost all stores come out with Doorbuster Sales with early bird specials to attract consumers to their stores. People stand in line hours before a store is opened, to grab the bargain of the year. Rather like our Boxing Day sales used to be like.
