What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the first Friday after the Thanksgiving in the United States, and it represents a perfect storm for retailers: many people in the US have the day off, and as a result it’s been the busiest shopping day of the year for nearly a decade.
To make things even busier, many retailers now offer some of their best sale bargains on Black Friday.
When is Black Friday?
In 2015, it’s Friday 27 November, which is perfect as the bargain hunting will continue till Monday, when will be Cyber Monday madness.
How did Black Friday get its name?
Some say it’s the day that retailers’ profits finally move into the black, although Wikipedia reckons that the true origin of the term comes from Philadelphia where it referred to the disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that occurred during the holiday.
Is Black Friday as big a deal as it seems?
Yes it is. Every year there are reports of fisticuffs as bargain-crazed shoppers beat each other up, partly because of the practice of using “doorbusters” – amazing and excruciatingly limited deals to attract as many customers as possible. US-based retailers such as Amazon are now keen to make it a tradition.
Is Black Friday connected to Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is the Monday immediately after Black Friday, and it was invented in 2005 in an attempt to create an online equivalent of Black Friday. What this has resulted in now, is an entire 4-day weekend of hot deals both in store and online.
