Le Black Friday, qu'est ce que c'est ?

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is a commercial tradition that has its origins in the United States. It takes place the day after the Thanksgiving holiday, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. Black Friday traditionally marks the start of the end-of-year shopping season, with numerous promotions, sales and discounts in physical and online stores.

The phrase "Black Friday" is believed to have been initially used in the 1960s to describe the chaos and traffic congestion caused by shopping and the start of the holiday season. Subsequently, it evolved to represent the moment when retailers begin to make a profit, moving from red (loss) to black (profit) on their accounting records.

The tradition of Black Friday has spread to other countries over the years, although the exact date may vary depending on local customs. Some countries have adopted it as an opportunity for consumers to enjoy substantial discounts, while others may not participate in this tradition as markedly.
