Why we celebrate Black Friday?

Black Friday is considered an unofficial day after Thanksgiving in the US. It is celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November. This symbolizes the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the country since 1952. Black Friday is a trading day for many reasons. Firstly, this is the first day after Thanksgiving. Secondly, within a few days many Americans go on a small vacation.

To take advantage of this opportunity, retailers offer various sales. In the beginning of 2010, retailers sell their goods outside the usual hours. They open at 12:00 or open at the usual time and work until midnight.

What Do People Do?

Black Friday is considered the busiest day in the United States. Since 2005, this day is considered the busiest trading day. In 2014, the volume of spending on Black Friday fell. According to statistics, on this day, on average traders can earn 50.9 billion dollars. Black Friday – the day when many Americans go for purchases, buy goods at low prices.

According to history, the term Black Friday arose Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy and destructive movement of pedestrians and vehicles, which is due to the effects of Thanksgiving. This term has been used since 1961. Twenty years later, this term is associated with the point at which retailers began to earn, rather than sell at a loss.

How to Celebrate Black Friday?

Many traders on this day open early in the morning, and sometimes even at night, offering buyers advertising sales. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and other states celebrate “Day after Thanksgiving” as a holiday for state employees, sometimes instead of Columbus Day.
