The countdown to sales bonanza Black Friday has begun in earnest, so get your elbows ready and standby to force yourself to the front of the checkout for some serious discounts.
Where has Black Friday come from?
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since 1932, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S, and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales - Black Friday is not an official holiday.
Why Black Friday?
Closest reason as to why it is know as Black Friday is given in Wikipedia - "Many retailers report some of their highest profits on Black Friday. The black portion of the name, "Black Friday" relates to businesses recording their losses in red ink and gains in black. This tradition lives on in modern accounting software, hence the name."
