Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It is often regarded as the onset of the Christmas shopping season. Retailers across America and indeed the world offer promotional sales to kick off the holiday season. The day’s name originated in Philadelphia, America. It was originally used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which occured on the day following Thanksgiving.
