What is Black Friday?
On Black Friday, shops around the world welcome customers with great discounts and offers, both online and in-store.
When is Black Friday 2019?
Traditionally, Black Friday is the day after American Thanksgiving (which is the fourth Thursday of November in the USA). In 2019, Black Friday falls on 29 November.
How did Black Friday begin?
There are multiple theories about the origin of the name ‘Black Friday’, but there’s a general consensus that Black Friday became a popular shopping term in the 1960s. A popular explanation is that this day represented the point in the year when retailers begin to turn a profit, thus going from being “in the red” to being “in the black”.
