Black Friday!

Black Friday

The day after Thanksgiving is known as “Black Friday”. It is one of the busiest shopping days in the USA and I guess that everyone waiting for it. It traditionally begins the Christmas shopping season. On this day people will get specials discounts so they are eager to wait the whole night in below freezing temperature outside stores to be the first ones to get inside the door and grab gifts and presents at the lowest prices!

But you wanna know why they called “Black Friday”?

Some said one of the reasons it is named “black” is because of the long lines in the stores. However, There are two more popular theories why 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.

Are you preparing yourself for the Black Friday coming?

    I actually have never gone shopping on black Friday! I don’t know if I want to try it out or not, but I’ve heard it is absolute mayhem.

    Also, I had no idea what the meaning of black Friday was so thank you for that!!! The two theories are completely different.. I think the one about recording business accounts makes more sense.

    Cool post!!!

    Last year i woke up at 5am because my friend wanna be the first person in front of the store but it happen that they mostly open around 8am Lol…Silly me!

    Btw, all the sale are good depends on what you wanna buy, Brandname, clothes, shoes, gifts, etc…. The sale discount more than normal and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season

    Another suggest is if you wanna buy sale but hate the crowd, you can wait until monday it’s call “Cyber Monday” the day that the shop online sale also. Personally, I shop on both day 😉
