What is Black Friday?

(Halatihazira) Black Friday is actually a day after the U.S Thanksgiving Holiday. This day itself is also a holiday for many employees.

Back in the late 1800s, many stores sponsored Thanksgiving parades.  After the parades, the stores opened their doors and the holiday shopping season began.  The exact year this tradition began is not known, by the beginning of the 20th century, it was common for retailers to start their holiday-season sales as soon as Thanksgiving ended.

On this day, sellers offer products with special shopping deals and great discounts. The day is considered the beginning of the holiday shopping season.

History of Black Friday

In History, this day was a stock market catastrophe that took place on Sept 24, 1869. After a period of uncontrolled supposition, the price of gold dropped, and the markets crashed.

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the last Thursday of November. When in 1939, five-Thursday November passed, business leaders asked President Franklin D. Roosevelt to move the holiday back a week so that the holiday shopping season could start earlier.
