The day after Thanksgiving - this year November 25th - is known as Black Friday. History states that many retailers report some of their highest profits on this day, hence the "black" portion of the name. "Black" Friday relates to businesses recording their losses in red ink and gains in black.
The retailers count Black Friday as the official start of holiday shopping season - not that you could tell being shelves were stocked with strings of lights back in October.
For bargain hunters it is the Super Bowl of shopping - the biggest sales day of the year! Almost all stores will have some sort of door-buster deals or early bird specials to attract consumers to their stores. People stand in line hours before stores open in order to grab the bargain of the year.
Here are some tips for you to make the most of your Black Friday shopping. I hope you share with us how you did on your adventure!
