Why Is Called Black Friday?

The term “Black Friday” was coined to mark the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. “Black” refers to stores moving from the “red” to the “black” back when accounting records were kept by hand, and red ink indicated a loss, and black a profit.

Because of that ever since the Friday after Thanksgiving has been known as the unofficial start of the shopping season. Those days sellers offer massive discounts on products in an attempt to persuade you to spend your money before Christmas.
