What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is a tradition that spans hundreds of different industries and has grown over time to such an extent that most companies, whether they specialise in selling products or services, embrace the tradition and offer exclusive offers to promote their business.

Who wouldn’t want to save money on the products that you have always dreamed of buying, whether for yourself or a loved one?!

Where did the Black Friday tradition come from?

Well, the name actually dates all the way back to 1869, referring to an event that was an awful lot less fun than the pre-Christmas shopping that we now associate the name with. On the 24th of September 1869, there was a devastating financial crash in the U.S. due to the crash of the U.S. gold market.

It was all down to two greedy financiers named Jay Gould and Jim Fisk, who collaborated on buying as much of the country’s gold as they could, digging deep into their alarmingly large pockets to drive the cost of gold up so high that they could sell their collection for unheard of profits.

It shook the entire nation and the U.S. stock market nose-dived, sending everyone from high-earning CEOs to humble farmers into bankruptcy. Naturally, this was a dark, dark day in American history, hence its adopted name of Black Friday.

It wasn’t until the 1950s that the name became relevant to the shopping industry. It was first used in this context by police in Philidelphia, who used the term to describe the chaos of the day after Thanksgiving, with huge crowds of people assembled in the city centre to get their shopping done.

Initially, the name garnered a negative reputation, due to the negative implications of this rush of shoppers, one of which was the unfortunate rise in shoplifting. Many shops decided to capitalise on the occasion, putting on annual sales on the last Friday of November, deterring shoplifters and bringing in unprecedented revenue that made Black Friday a period of financial growth, rather than the loss it had signified back in 1869.

Nowadays, Black Friday marks the beginning of the festive season!
