Why Is Black Friday so Named?
To understand why it is called Black Friday, let’s look back in time: When many called in ill the day following Thanksgiving to get an extra day off work, the term “Black Friday” was first used to refer to this shopping experience in a November 1951 article in the journal Factory Management and Maintenance(opens in new tab).
At the same time, US authorities were referring to the horrible traffic that occurred at the start of the pre-Christmas shopping season as “Black Friday” and “Black Saturday.”
The local government attempted to change the shopping season to “Big Friday” and “Big Saturday” in 1961, but it was unsuccessful. The idea that it was the time when retailers moved “back into the black” was seen much later and was obviously an effort to uplift the term.
