Why Black Friday
Is Called Black Friday
Black Friday is the name given in the US to
the shopping day after Thanksgiving.
It was originally called Black Friday
because so many people went out to shop that
it caused traffic accidents and sometimes
even violence. The name was first recorded
in 1966 by Earl Apfelbaum, a dealer in rare
stamps. In his ad, he said, "'Black Friday'
is the name that the Philadelphia Police
Department gave to the Friday following
Thanksgiving Day. It is not a term of
endearment for them. 'Black Friday'
officially opens the Christmas shopping
season in center city, and it usually brings
massive traffic jams and over-crowded
sidewalks as the downtown stores are mobbed
from opening to closing." The Police
Department coined the phrase to describe the
mayhem surrounding the congestion of
pedestrian and auto traffic in the Center
City downtown area.
