Who wants to shop on the day after Thanksgiving when you can relax on a beach with a tropical cocktail in one hand and your sunscreen in the other?
According to History.com, the term Black Friday originally had nothing to do with bargain shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday referred specifically to the crash of the U.S. gold market on September 24, 1869, when a couple of scheming, ruthless financial wonks put the stock market into a free fall. Fortunately, this tale has a happy ending: On that September Friday, financial authorities unearthed this plot and the gold market was saved.
It’s anybody’s guess why the term “Black Friday” was picked as the name used to denote the busiest shopping day of the year, but for retailers, the day after Thanksgiving turned into a gold mine beginning in 1961 when savvy merchants adopted this theme.
These days, the National Retail Federation estimates that around 135.8 million Americans intend to launch their holiday shopping on the day after Thanksgiving—but why in heaven’s name must you be one of them? There’s a better way to spend this particular day and we’ve got news that can save you money rather than spending it!
