Black Friday falls on the Friday after the Thanksgiving holiday. So, this means that this year, Black Friday falls on the 24th of November, 2023.
The term "Black Friday" was first used by police to describe the terrible crowds and holiday traffic in Philadelphia and Rochester on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 1951-52 and in the New York Times in 1975. It now signifies the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
It only reached mainstream vocabulary in the 1980s, when The Philadelphia Inquirer published an article attributing the term to accounting ledgers. "Black Friday" signified when retailers would hit their yearly profit, moving from the red to the black in their accounting ledger.
Over the decades, Black Friday has migrated over the pond to the UK, and many retailers put on Black Friday sales for their customers.
As it originates from America, Black Friday is also called Black Friday in the UK, even though it is traditionally part of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Often, retailers in the UK will put on Black Friday events that last an entire week so customers can take the most advantage of the Black Friday deals and so stores don't get overwhelmed with shoppers. Retailers often choose the week leading up to Black Friday, with the Friday being the day with the biggest deals. Or, they use the Friday to initiate the Black Friday event, which continues throughout the following week.
