There are many theories about the origin of "Black Friday", one of which refers to a group of under-represented people who go to the mall for shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving Day. A more common view is that since this day is the first day after Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday in November), it is the traditional and grand Christmas in the United States. People usually start Christmas shopping from this day. Shops will have customers surpassing the door and make large payments.
Traditionally, different colors of ink are used for bookkeeping. Red means loss or deficit, and black means profit. So this Friday is called Black Friday to indicate that there will be profits on this day. Because discounts in stores generally start at midnight (that is, midnight on Friday) when Thanksgiving ends, people who want to buy bargains must rush to the mall and line up to buy bargains. This can also be regarded as "Black Friday" One of the origins. There is a vivid way of saying this behavior, called Early Bird.
THE ORIGIN OF BLACK FRIDAY: A HISTORY LESSON
Let’s take a Black Friday history lesson: the first known mention of Black Friday related to this shopping experience was in November 1951, when the journal Factory Management and Maintenance used it to describe people calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving so they could have an extra day off work. At the same time US police were using the phrases “Black Friday” and “Black Saturday” to describe the horrendous traffic that occurred at the beginning of the pre-Christmas shopping season.
In 1961 there was a movement from the local government to change the shopping season to “Big Friday” and “Big Saturday”, but it never caught on, and the notion that it was the time when retailers moved 'back into the black' was seen far later and clearly an attempt to bring positivity to the term.
Every November and December is the traditional shopping season in the United States, and "Black Friday" is the craziest shopping day for Americans of the year. The store staff used the name Black Friday to laugh at themselves, saying that this day will be extremely busy.On Black Friday, most shops will open at five or six in the morning, some even earlier. Merchants will even take measures to attract customers by publishing advertisements in newspapers a few days before Thanksgiving, issuing coupons, and drastically reducing the prices of goods. Many consumers regard this day as a golden time to prepare Christmas gifts or buy bargains. Due to the limited number of reduced-price products, many popular stores such as Wal-Mart have long queues the night before.In the United States, in addition to various shopping malls, there are four long-established national department stores, namely Macy's, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. These four department store brands and positioning have their own merits, which are sufficient to meet different shopping needs.
Black Friday is also the launch day of the unofficial Christmas shopping season in the United States. In 2013, the scale of online shopping during the Christmas season in the United States will reach 62 billion US dollars, a year-on-year increase of 15%. Among them, mobile phones and tablets will serve as the main mobile shopping and will become the biggest bright spot. It is estimated that the scale of mobile shopping during the Christmas season will exceed US$10 billion.
