There are a few supposed origins of Black Friday, but the most popular suggests that the name came from bookkeeping.
Accountants would often colour-code their recordings, with red ink being used to show negative amounts, and black ink for positive amounts. Black Friday therefore would jumpstart the busiest shopping period of the year, meaning companies recording profits would no longer be “in the red”.
On Black Friday there are huge reductions offered on a wide variety of stock, meaning you could find a great deal in the run up to Christmas.
Black Friday originated in the United States, with the title appearing in The New York Times on 29 November 1975. In 1985, however, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that “Black Friday” was still not recognised in the likes of Los Angeles (California) or Cincinnati (Ohio).
