What is the origin of Black Friday?

Black Friday or "Black Friday" emerged in the United States, more specifically in Philadelphia, just during the economic crisis in the 1930s.

Due to the bad situation experienced at the time, thousands of merchants were forced to declare bankruptcy. Bad tongues say that it was a brilliant idea that a merchant named Fred Lazarus Jr. had (considered the creator of the first sales) that changed everything.

Seeing that the stores were left with many unsold garments, Lazarus thought that a good alternative would be to lower the price of the products to give them output. And he triumphed! So much so that he managed to convince the President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, to advance a week on the calendar the celebration of Thanksgiving with the aim of having more days of sale for Christmas.

And that's how Black Friday came about! A shopping day where you will find what are probably the best discounts of the year. It is celebrated on the last Friday of November, after Thanksgiving, and it is the day that officially kicks off the Christmas season.

Why is it called Black Friday?

Have you ever wondered how and why it ended up calling itself "Black Friday"? The truth is that there is no definitive answer to this question, what does exist are several hypotheses that explain the origin of the term Black Friday.

Some say the name was coined by the Philadelphia police force to refer to the chaotic traffic that formed in the streets the day after Thanksgiving, when people went out to buy massively collapsing the roads. Agents called this day the "black day" for the large number of incidents that occurred.

Others say that the name was created by the merchants themselves to refer to the success of the day. For them, this was a day that came loaded with positivism because, thanks to numerous sales, the establishments went from the red numbers to the black numbers in their accounts. That is, it was a day when they had benefits again.
