The earliest evidence of the phrase Black Friday in a shopping context applied to the day after Thanksgiving. The term originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the busy streets of pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving when shops started their sales.
The history of Black Friday started much earlier than people think. The day after Thanksgiving was the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season since the late 19th century. The day after Thanksgiving wasn't called Black Friday then. The term Black Friday was first used in the United States to describe a financial crisis 150 years ago in 1869, when on September 24, 1869, a Friday, James Fish and Jay Gould tried to take over the gold market in the New York Gold Exchange.
Over the last few years the UK seem to have widely adopted the ‘Black Friday’ term from our English speaking neighbours over the Atlantic by offering items at discounted prices and special offers in the build up to the festive periods trade!
