Black friday is such an odd name. My son asked me today, "mommy, what is black friday." I told him that it was the day after thanksgiving and he was not satisfied with that answer. So I looked it up.
The term refers to accounting books going from being in the "red" to being in the "black". The day after thanksgiving marks the first day of the holiday season. People begin shopping and stores begin to offer bargins. In other words, the stores finally start making a profit.

that completely makes sense.
my boyfriend was saying that his store made over a million dollars yesterday (the first time ever for his store) » lazypuppy

hahaha... sorry, but I still think it's a horrible day. But that goes the same for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, New Years and other various holidays.
So maybe I'm just the Scrooge in this scenario. » elessar257

Yep that is right. Trust me I work retail.... The Christmas music has been playing since Friday. It isn't even December and I already want to blow my brains out.... » stlcardsgal86
