How Black Friday Got Its Name

Have you ever wondered how Black Friday originated? If  you haven't, I have.  According to Wikipedia, it is the informal name coined for the day after Thanksgiving in the United States which started the Christmas shopping season since 1952. The term Black Friday became popular during the 80's and even later in some regions of the country, though there are earlier evidence of the term being used starting in 1961 in Philadelphia, PA.

For many years Black Friday is considered the busiest shopping day of the year in the U.S. Over the  years it has been extended from one day to a four day event. If you would like to find out more about Black Friday, click Black Friday Shopping or view video below.
