The Black Friday 2017 deals are here! Just a few more days to go.
In the United States, Black Friday is the day just after Thanksgiving Day and the Friday preceding Cyber Monday. It is a day of big shopping, so some American states declare it a holiday. In fact, it is one of America’s busiest days of shopping. So the Black Friday 2017 date is 24th November.
There are two theories attributed to this day being called Black Friday. According to one, on the day after Thanksgiving Day, the wheels of vehicles in heavy traffic leave black markings on the road, leading it to be called Black Friday.
The second theory points to the fact that according to the old accounting system, retailers recorded their profits in black ink and their losses in red. Many businesses begin to make a profit the day after Thanksgiving Day while many others hoped to see a huge profit, hence the name.
What’s Open or Closed?
Black Friday is not a federal holiday, but is a public holiday in some states. Many people take a day of their annual leave on the day after Thanksgiving Day. Many organizations also close for the Thanksgiving weekend.
Public transit systems may run on their normal schedule or may have changes. Some stores extend their opening hours on Black Friday. There can also be congestion on roads to popular shopping destinations.
Why Black Friday is huge shopping day: This is for a variety of reasons. First, it’s the last big holiday before Christmas, so it marks the unofficial start to the Christmas shopping season. Besides, many employers add on this day to the holidays of the Thanksgiving weekend. To take advantage of this, all retailers, no matter how big or small, offer attractive sales to draw in traffic. As the years go by, retailers are extending their normal business hours so that now there are stores that remain open at midnight.
On this day, many employees are given the day off or take a holiday to either shop for Christmas or to meet up with family members or to take a vacation. If people shop for Christmas presents on Black Friday, they could get good offers at attractive prices.
