I was reading a Thanksgiving post in here a few days ago and sombody said something about the very next day being the busiest shopping day of the year. They referred to it though as Black Friday. I asked why but I don't think anyone posted why so I thought I would make this post to see if anyone on here knows why it is referred to as Black Friday???

I'm pretty sure this is right, but when the stock market crashed in 1920, their sales were bad and they were recorded in a red book. Once everything got back on track, the sales started going up and back to normal and they were recorded in a black book. They called it black friday because the sales were so great....I think thats the reason :shrug:

Origin: 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.

I think it should be called RED friday, because you want to kill everyone in your path!!
Well in my part of the US we had several people get beat up while trying to get the early morning deals. I also heard on the news that an old lady was beat with her own cane while trying to get an $18 DVD player. The things people will do to save $5 is amazing.

Yeah its really amazing. A few years back, some lady got pushed down and trampled on just to buy a tv. No one even stopped to help her up. They said she was in the hospital for awhile. All the store did was give her a raincheck for the tv :lol:
