Black Friday

El Black Friday, or Black Friday, is the day that marks the official start of the Christmas shopping season. This day is usually the day after Thanksgiving. You'll find many retailers and wholesalers running sales to kick off the Christmas shopping season.

Their origins are in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy traffic of people and vehicles that packed all the streets of the city the day after Thanksgiving. It was in 1961 when the police began to use this term, becoming popular in 1966 and spreading throughout the US in 1975.

Later an alternative explanation would arise, and that is that the term "black" referred to the merchants' own accounts during this day, since they spent from red to black numbers thanks to increased purchases.

Finally, this shopping and sales fever would spread to other countries, arriving in Spain hand in hand with large chains that made significant discounts on their products and that finally also infected other smaller businesses.
