Though the first reference of a Black Friday was in reference to the financial market crash in September of 1869, the earliest use of the term Black Friday when in reference to the day after Thanksgiving in a context related to shopping started in Philadelphia. The term was used to describe the disruptive walking and vehicle traffic due to the volume of shoppers on that day.
In the 1950’s, employees began calling in sick on “Black Friday” to give themselves a longer weekend for the holiday. This is the unofficial start of the Holiday Shopping Season. It is one of the biggest shopping days of the year due to the huge mark down sales used to attract shoppers.
According to a pre-holiday survey this year by the National Retail Federation, an estimated 135.8 million Americans plan to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend (58.7 % of those surveyed), though even more (183.8 million, or 79.6 %) said they would take advantage of the online deals offered on Cyber Monday.
