Black Friday is one of the biggest events in the retail calendar — with huge sales from tons of stores and websites.
Let's see where did the day come from and how did it get the name?
On Black Friday, store prices are falling for 24 hours, trying to get people to spend cash choosing gifts for Christmas.
In the US people often queue for hours, or even days to get the best deals. Brits prefer to shop online enjoying sales from the comfort of their home.
Shopping on Black Friday often goes out of the control. The trick not to lose it is to get prepared and organized for shopping to know what you want before you start shopping to avoid unnecessary costs.
Where did Black Friday come from?
This is traditionally the day that follows Thanksgiving in America and is considered the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. As Americans celebrate Thanksgiving Day they have some days off and can spend the holiday at the stores.
Retailers have opened longer to attract customers. The idea has now spread all around the world and Black Friday is popular in many countries.
Black Friday got its name because the Mammoth shopping day is the first time in the year when retailers get out of debt and “into black”. Every year big retailers offer lower prices for customers before Christmas comes. They offer discounts until Cyber Monday, which is the first Monday after Black Friday, so this year it will fall on November 26th.
Cyber Monday works for online stores only, while Black Friday both for regular stores and online. Cyber Monday is a one day shopping window, Black Friday offers usually lasts 5 days long.
Here are our tips to find the best deals on this Black Friday and Cyber Monday:

- Follow your favorite stores on Facebook or Instagram and subscribe to the newsletter to get the latest news on any offers.
- Check codes. Take a look at The Sun Vouchers and see, if you can get an additional discount with discount codes.
Black Friday got its name, because it often happens that stores “go into the black”, that means, they have enough money to cover their expenses when offering lower prices.
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday GivingTuesday was established in 2012 as a day of generosity and philanthropy. This is Tuesday following Thanksgiving, on that day people, organizations and communities encourage giving to charities and those in need.
