Today we’re revisiting our history of Black Friday with a shopping treat just for you at the end!
Every year on this day, thousands of frantic shoppers race to the stores to get the best deals on gifts for the holidays. The most wonderful time of the year can sometimes turn into a nightmare if you get caught up in the Black Friday epidemic on the streets. Thanksgiving has marked the beginning of the holiday season in America since the 19th century, and retailers have clung to this idea for market value. Although the term “Black Friday” originally referred to the stock market panic on September 24, 1864, set off by a drop in the price of gold, these two words have now become synonymous with one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The justification of the term came from the black ink mark left on accounting reports for retailers when they made a profit—or the black mark on a shopper’s credit score for getting too much in debt.
