NEXT FRIDAY  (NO. 25th) IS  BLACK FRIDAY, BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN ORIGINALLY?

Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the USA, often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In recent years, most major retailers have opened extremely early and offered promotional sales to kick off the holiday shopping season…

The use of the term started before 1961 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975. An explanation for the name was made: that retailers traditionally operated at a financial loss (“in the red”) from January through November, and “Black Friday” indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or “in the black”.

  1. Spaniards really have enthusiastically embraced discounts. In my opinion, this is the hot point. That is in our genes and it’s why we have quickly adopted this American tradition. It’s a marketing strategy that has changed our shopping habits. Most of us are going to take advantage of Black Friday to buy Christmas gifts and exactly because of that it’s quite popular. If you know what you want to buy it’s a good oportunity.
