Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is our yearly signal that holiday shopping has begun. Everyone knows about the tradition of stores opening early with great deals (and long lines), but not many know the origin of Black Friday.

Black Friday

The name gained popularity around 1961 and originally arose from the heavy traffic caused by travelers and shoppers. Later a financial explanation formed:  Retailers were generally in the red (a financial loss) from January until November, and started going “in the black” (a profit) the day after Thanksgiving.

Eventually retailers made a tradition of offering special Black Friday deals. Some deals were so good that customers lined up outside the store hours before it opened. This led to stores opening very early on Black Friday. In the past few years, some stores open as early as midnight, or even on Thanksgiving evening!

As the craze for deals grew, retailers decided that one day wasn’t enough. Cyber Monday formed as an online retail equivalent, although many online retailers also offer Black Friday deals as well.

If you plan on going deal hunting on Black Friday this year, don’t forget to stay warm and be safe! Or take advantage of Cyber Monday and shop from the comfort of your home!
