What is Black Friday?

If you are new to online purchases, you must be wondering what this Black Friday phenomenon that is making such a fuzz in social media is all about. Below we provide a bit of its history and what you can expect on this day when shopping online!

The term Black Friday is associated with the economic downturn in the United States in 1869. In 1966 it was known as the Friday following Thanksgiving, a time where the holiday buying season officially began in Philadelphia. The police department referred to it as such due to the massive traffic jams and the packed sidewalks.

Presently, Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, and all stores offer their merchandise at very reduced discount prices. Black Friday will be on Friday, November 29. During this day (starting at 12:00 A.M), and for the entire weekend, you can take advantage of the discounts and specials available at online retailers (the biggest of the year) and get your Christmas shopping done on time!
