Why is it Called Black Friday?
The earliest evidence of the phrase Black Friday applied to the day after Thanksgiving in a shopping context suggests that the term originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. This usage dates to at least 1961. More than twenty years later, as the phrase became more widespread, a popular explanation became that this day represented the point in the year when retailers begin to turn a profit, thus going from being "in the red" to being "in the black".

When Did Black Friday Start?
Accounts of using the term "Black Friday" began as early as 1952, but it hasn't always been synonymous with shopping. Back then workers would develop a mysterious illness and not report to work the day after Thanksgiving, so as to enjoy a four-day weekend. In Philadelphia later the 1960s the term described the crowds and smog associated with the shopping day. It wasn't until the 1980s that Black Friday and doorbuster sales became synonymous.
