Some Background on Black Friday
Surprisingly, the name Black Friday was probably not coined as a positive phrase. The term was used to describe the hectic business and overcrowding of vehicles and people in the weekend after Thanksgiving Day. Even so, good or bad, this day is undoubtedly the shopping day of the year, and the Black Friday weekend is a great chance to catch good deals on your desired items.
