Black Friday is an annual shopping event that takes place the day after Thanksgiving in the United States. It is considered to be the start of the holiday shopping season, and many retailers offer significant discounts on their products to attract shoppers.
The term “Black Friday” originated in Philadelphia in the 1960s, when it was used to describe the heavy traffic and chaos that occurred on the day after Thanksgiving. In the 1980s, the term began to be used more widely to describe the shopping frenzy that took place on that day.
Today, Black Friday is known for its long lines, early store openings, and crowds of shoppers looking for deals on everything from electronics to clothing to toys. In recent years, many retailers have extended their Black Friday sales to include the entire weekend and even Cyber Monday, which is the Monday after Thanksgiving and is dedicated to online shopping deals.
Black Friday has become a major cultural phenomenon, with many people treating it as a holiday in its own right. #BlackFriday
