Origin of the term Black Friday 


Black Friday has been the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States.  As for describing this day in black, it is not the result of hatred or pessimism, and this name was given for the first time in 1960 by the Philadelphia city police, who gave this name, as large traffic and crowds and long queues appeared in front of the shops during this day known as shopping.

Since 1952 the day after Thanksgiving has been regarded as the beginning  of the United States christmas  shopping season .

Why does it exist ?

The name Black Friday dates back to the nineteenth century, as it was associated with the financial crisis of 1869 in the United States, which constituted a major blow to the American economy, as goods stagnated and sales and purchases stopped, which caused an economic disaster in America, which recovered from it through several measures, including a measure Major discounts on products to sell instead of stagnation and reduce losses as much as possible


 Since that day, it has become a tradition in America that major stores, shops and agencies make major discounts on their products up to 90% of their value, to return after that to their normal price after the end of Black Friday
