So with our Black Friday deal announced we thought we would give some information as to what exactly black Friday is and where it came from.
But how did the annual tradition come about, and how did it get its name?
What is Black Friday?
On Black Friday, retail prices heavily decrease for 24 hours in an attempt to get people splashing the cash in the run-up to Christmas.
In the States customers often queue for hours, even days to get their hands on the best bargains.
The hoards of people are more reserved in the UK, in recent years the majority of Brits opted to shop online from the comfort of their home.
But unfortunately, the shopping mania has been known to descend into violence in the UK, as people argue over discounted gadgets and appliances.
Why is it called Black Friday?
The day was given its name as it is often the day that shops “move into the black”, meaning they have enough money to cover their costs while reducing prices.
But it also originated within the police and NHS to refer to the Friday before Christmas, which is when emergency services anticipate extra pressures put on them due to Christmas celebrations.
However, among shoppers it is well known as a day of bargains which has come across the pond from the US since the beginning of the 21st century.
When is Black Friday 2018?
This year Black Friday is on November 23, with Cyber Monday on November 26.
The trick is to be prepared and organised and to always know what you want before the sales start – to avoid unnecessary spending.
