Free Shipping: Code: Black Friday
Black Friday Sales are due to start in the USA today November 25th. Black Friday sales occur on the Friday after Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November. Some States even observe the day as a holiday giving people a lovely 4 day week-end.
Philadelphia is credited at starting the term "Black Friday" around 1961, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.
Another theory is that the term was used by employers to describe the heavy absenteeism from work on the day after Thanksgiving due to people taking a "sickie" in order to have a 4 day weekend to recover from the joy of Thanksgiving.
However a more popular explanation is that Black Friday is the time in the year when retailers start to turn a profit, thus going from being "in the red" to being "in the black".
But with the advent of e-commerce Black Friday sales are no longer limited to the USA, but have become a tradition throughout the rest of the world as well. Just like the tradition of Halloween has caught on, so has the rush to purchase goods on Black Friday and online sales this year are expected to reach an all time high as eager shoppers search the web for bargains.
