Tales of Black Friday: From Chaos to Savings and Education!
🛍️🖤 Ever wondered why it's called 'Black Friday'? Today, it's known for mega sales and shopping madness, but its origins are quite different! Let’s dive into the history books... 📚✨
Back in the 1950s in Philadelphia, the term ‘Black Friday’ was used by the police to describe the chaos that ensued on the day after Thanksgiving, when hordes of shoppers and tourists flooded the city in advance of the big Army vs. Navy football game held on that Saturday every year. 🏈🌇
Retailers, noticing the spike in their sales, soon linked this day to their profit margins turning from 'red' to 'black' – accounting terms for loss and profit. By the 1980s, ‘Black Friday’ became synonymous with the start of the Christmas shopping season across the United States. 🇺🇸🎄
