Originating in America, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and marks the start of the holiday shopping season. This year Black Friday is celebrated on 25th November. Over the past few years, Black Friday has come across the pond and is now celebrated in the UK.
Originally celebrated on one day, this bargain bagging occasion now extends before and after the designated Friday. Black Friday sales often start on Monday of the same week and run until the following Monday – or even longer – a great opportunity to get cut-price goodies! Many high street and online retailers report some of their highest profits on and around Black Friday.
The black element of ‘Black Friday’ relates to businesses recording their losses in red ink and gains in black. This tradition continues in modern accounting software, hence the name.
Consumer organisation Which? has some practical advice and top tips to help bargain-hunters make the most of the Black Friday sales this year.
