What is Black Friday
Black Friday started in America and originated in Philadelphia, it is always the day after Thanksgiving. In 2023, Black Friday will be on Friday 24th November 2023.
In the 1950s police in Philadelphia coined the phrase 'Black Friday' to describe the disruptive traffic caused by hordes of people descending into the city for the days after Thanksgiving.
Americans began extending their holidays or calling in sick on Thanksgiving to sneak in a four-day weekend so that they could grab the best deals. Since shops were open on Black Friday, many people would use it to get a head start on Christmas shopping.
Due to this growing trend, many businesses started making the Friday an official paid holiday.
Although Black Friday in the UK didn't really exist until 2010, and it wasn’t until 2013 that we had what could be called the first Black Friday UK event that resembled the American version, with crowds surging into shops and making huge purchases online.
Last year, Black Friday was the most popular to date in the UK.
