Black Friday (shopping): Name in the US for the Friday following Thanksgiving Day
Black Friday is an informal name for the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. The day after Thanksgiving has been regarded as the beginning of the United States Christmas shopping season since 1952. The term "Black Friday" did not become widely used until more recent decades, during which time global retailers have adopted the term and date to market their own holiday sales.
