Black Friday is one of the biggest retail shopping events of the year. It originated right here in the USA. In the last decade, Black Friday has become a fave occasion to kick off their Christmas shopping.

When is Black Friday 2018?

Black Friday 2018 is on November 22nd this year. The date always falls on the day after American Thanksgiving. The retail "holiday" has grown from a one-day frenzy to a four-day (sometimes week-long) event with businesses opening earlier on Friday and even extending online deals into the wee hours of the morning. From Thursday night door-crashers, to weekend carry-overs, to the Cyber Monday online shop-a-thon, Black Friday has turned into a retail holiday that keeps on giving. We will be posting the latest Black Friday deals here in the lead-up and during the weekend itself from your fave stores.

Why is it called Black Friday?

Do you know why it is called Black Friday? Why Black Friday is called Black Friday is quite the story, it's actually called Black Friday because when it first started people would go out shopping after Thanksgiving and it caused so many accidents and violence (and even death at times) that the mayhem was dubbed Black Friday. Black Friday is called Black Friday because of the craziness that surrounds the day, including big lines, millions shopping and more, and that is not a term that's looked upon in glowing terms by most.

Is Black Friday worth it?

Something shoppers are always wondering is, is Black Friday really worth it? While some may say no, most believe it is worth it. The deals and sales can be so good that if you're looking for a great Black Friday deal, and you're willing to deal with the crowds and traffic, it's totally worth it to save money on the great deals. To me you can save more than half on a purchase you'd regularly be spending twice the amount on so Black Friday is totally worth it for shoppers who want an amazing deal.

Where does Black Friday come from?

A lot of people have wondered, where does Black Friday come from? The backstory of Black Friday is truly something to read about.

Though some say that the name "Black Friday" was inspired by the popular retail phrase of being "in the black" (making a profit), the history is a lot more interesting than that! The first recorded use of the term is a market crash that happened in the US on Friday, September 24, 1869. The crash happened when two Wall Street financiers, Jay Gould and Jim Fisk, tried to manipulate the marketplace and drive up the price of gold.

Almost a century later, police in the city of Philadelphia revived the term when they tried to (unsuccessfully) discourage folks from participating in the retail frenzy that always followed Thanksgiving. Over time, the phrase earned a positive spin that most of us are familiar with today, as the day when retailers can move their ledgers from "red" to "black" and turn a profit in the lead-up to Christmas. Interesting right?

When does Black Friday 2018 end?
