What is Black Friday?

So why is it called Black Friday? We shop till we drop, but many never really ask why. While many use it to describe the shopping frenzy that ensues, it actually dates back to the US in 1924 when bookkeepers used the word “black” to describe major profit increases as opposed to being “in the red.” And no longer just an American day, this commercial tradition is becoming more global each year with popularity exploding in countries like the United Kingdom and Australia. Known in the past as a primarily in-store event, it has gone mostly digital in recent years. Meaning tons of promotions and price drops to keep an eye out for on-screen and off! But where to start? Don’t worry, consider this your guide to the biggest shopping event of the year.

When is Black Friday 2023?

Always falling on the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 24th this year), it has even become a week-long event in many countries.
