Black Friday is held on the Friday after Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the Fourth Thursday in November, particularly in the U.S.A.
From 2000, this day has been marked as the start of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S. As such, many retailers give attractive promotional offers on that day, attracting millions of customers.
Retailers open early like 4 a.m or 5 am. and some even on the previous midnight or evening. It is not uncommon to see crowds queuing up early in the morning in front of retailers to take advantage of the promotional offers for sure.
Black Friday is not an official holiday but some American states observe holiday on “the Day after Thanksgiving”. Many schools and non-retail employees get Thanksgiving Day and the following Friday off, thus enjoying a four day weekend. This long holiday has been used by retailers to encourage an unprecedented shopping season bordering on shopping frenzy or madness.
Black Friday has become the busiest shopping time of the year. The name of the day originated in Philadelphia to describe the disruptive and heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic after Thanksgiving Day. This use started from 1961.
Another source of origin of the name stems from the fact that retailers reported financial losses (in the Red)from January to November but after Black Friday, they began reporting profits or were ‘”In The Black.”
The shopping frenzy during this day has seen even the breakout of violence, with stampedes of crowds killing shoppers as well as retail store employees. One ideal way to shop is to avoid the crowds is through online shopping.
