Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day and the Friday before Cyber Monday in the United States. It is a busy shopping day and is a holiday in some states. It is considered the beginning of Christmas shopping season. This day has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005. In 2014, $50.9 billion was spent during the 4-day Black Friday weekend, down 11% from last year. While approximately 133 million U.S. consumers shopped during the same period, down 5.2% from last year’s 141 million.
The name “Black Friday” was derived due to the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. “Black Friday” indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or “in the black”.
