What is Black Friday?

This day of discounts takes place in the United States one day after Thanksgiving, that is, in 2020 it will be on November 27. Its origin dates back to the first decades of the 20th century, when the parades were created for the holiday. In this way it became a tradition to start with Christmas shopping after Thanksgiving . However, merchants are said to have pressured then-President Flanklin Roosevelt for more days of sale. So it was toured a week before, but the idea did not work and it continued on the original date.

On the other hand, its name refers to the fact that that day the stores stopped having red numbers and obtained higher profits, that is, black numbers.

Nowadays, it is used so that businesses of all sectors make strato-spherical offers.
