So let’s talk about what this Black Friday is, how and why it became so popular and what to expect for this year, 2016.
Black Friday in brief.
We have learnt that Black Friday as a thing was first coined in the year 1960 and it was to mark the start of the Christmas shopping season. The reason behind the use of BLACK is said to be that during that shopping season, retailers recorded massive profits turning their red ink to black because red ink represented loss while profit was recorded in black in the sales recording style of “then days”. Since that time, the Friday after Thanksgiving has been observed to be a start of exciting holiday shopping season.
Black Friday has translated to be one of the busiest shopping periods in the entire calendar year from the past years leading up until 2016. This exciting day falls normally between the 23rd of November to 29th November each year. Last year’s was 27th of November and 2016’s Black Friday gratefully falls on the 25th of November.
Black Friday is not a recognized federal or public holiday in most countries, but some states observe state holiday so that workers can take advantage of the day and shop to their fill. It is not also surprising that, even in states that do not give state holiday for Black Friday, workers schedule a one day leave for the period to enable them take all the time they need for the Black Friday shopping.
