As we told that the day was originated by Americans, Black Friday is the last Friday of the November, which is the day after Thanksgiving Day and couple of days before Cyber Monday, which is celebrated widely in US. In many of the states of US this is off day and it is regarded as the Shopping weekend for Christmas.


From where it came?

There are two popular theories as to why the day after Thanksgiving Day is called Black Friday. One theory is that the wheels of vehicles in heavy traffic on the day after Thanksgiving Day left many black markings on the road surface, leading to the term Black Friday.

The other theory is that the term Black Friday comes from an old way of recording business accounts. Losses were recorded in red ink and profits in black ink. Many businesses, particularly small businesses, started making profits prior to Christmas. Many hoped to start showing a profit, marked in black ink, on the day after Thanksgiving Day.
