23 Nov Where did Black Friday come from?
Black Friday is the day that follows Thanksgiving in America, It is regarded as the beginning of the Christmas Holiday shopping Season.
Americans celebrate Thanksgiving by having the day off and the next day off, giving them 4 days free to shop.
Usually people would use these days off to spend time shopping for the upcoming holiday christmas. By doing this retailers in recent years have been staying open later or opening earlier with special deals and discounts to entice customers.
The idea has now globally spread across the world with other countries joining in the day or week of crazy shopping.
