Black Friday is an unofficial holiday that started in the United States evolving from 1952. It is a day where most major retailers open offers for promotional sales. Mostly a day before thanksgiving, Black Friday is regarded as the beginning of Christmas shopping in the U.S. where almost all stores give out attractive discounts for flagship products.

Why the Name ‘Black’ Friday?

‘Black’ because many retailers were recorded to have made their highest profits on Black Friday. Also, it is relating to businesses recording their losses in red ink and gains in black. It was reported that people queued at most retail shops early before shops were opened just to be the first to grab the amazing stuffs. The presence of overcrowding in these shops led to many injured with some others losing their lives hence the term ‘Black’.
