Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. On this day many U.S. retailers open very early, often at 5 a.m., and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season. Because Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, the day after occurs between the 23rd and the 29th of November.
The day's name originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. Use of the term began by 1966 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975. Later an alternative explanation began to be offered: that "Black Friday" indicates the period during which retailers are turning a profit, or "in the black."
Black Friday di Amerika lazimnya jatuh pada hari pertama selepas perayaan thanksgiving.
Istilah ni digunakan oleh rakyat sana untuk mengambarkan "gila" nya rakyat sana membelibelah sempena persiapan nak menyambut Krismas tak lama lagi.
Masa ni juga la kebanyakan kedai dan pusat membelibelah akan memberi diskaun untuk barang yang paling popular di sana. Contohnya sekarang, ramai yang nak beli IPad, so dari apa yang di baca d internet, ada yang bagi diskaun sehingga usd100.
So sapa2 yg ada duit lebih, time ni la nak shopping.....
