- What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is officially the day after the US holiday of Thanksgiving. It’s regarded as the first day of the Christmas shopping season, which is why there are so many amazing deals and bargains to be had.
- When is Black Friday?
The actual date will vary each year depending on when Thanksgiving falls in the US but it’s always the day (Friday) after Thanksgiving. It can be really helpful when it comes to budgeting for Christmas, so it’s worth getting the Black Friday date in your 2019 diary.
- Why is it called Black Friday?
There are a few different theories as to the origins of Black Friday, and according to Wikipedia, the term originated in Philadelphia where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur the day after Thanksgiving.
Another popular theory is that the name comes from bookkeeping. Accountants would often colour-code their recordings; red ink was used to show negative amounts and black ink was used for positive amounts. Black Friday kick-starts the busiest shopping period of the year, so companies recording profits would no longer be ‘in the red’.
