Black Friday is an informal name for the day following the Thanksgiving Day in the United States. The Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday of November. Black Friday is considered the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US.
In the United States, most major retailers open very early in the morning, even right after midnight and have significant discounts. Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States.
The first use of the term seems to come from Philadelphia in the US, where it was used to describe the intense pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would happen the day after Thanksgiving.
The term is no longer limited within the United States, but it is used in various countries around the world with major retailers having significant discounts!
