Black Friday

When I first saw "Black Friday", I thought it was another perilous Friday believed to cause havoc, fear, whatever nonsensical stuff that anyone can think of - similar to the Friday the 13th.

And that first time was LAST WEEK... (yea, yea...laugh all you want~)

Com'on, Friday is always associated with something bad - there's a story behind it.

  1. To those who already know, you can continue laughing until your jaw starts to lock.
  2. To those who has the same fate as me, enlighten yourself by reading on...

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, in which in this very day, U.S. consumers begin their Christmas shopping spree. As Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursdays in the U.S., Black Friday may be as early as 23rd of November or as late as 29th of November. This day is heavily promoted by retailers, opening as early as 5 a.m., and offering good deals/discounts to attract customers.

The origin of Black Friday comes from the shift to profitability during the holiday season. Black Friday was when retailers went from being unprofitable, or "in the red," to being profitable, or "in the black", at a time when accounting records were kept by hand and red indicated loss and black, profit.
