Yes, it has something to do with Thanksgiving Day. Read this before you shop till you drop at Black Friday Sale.
Black Friday is one day after Thanksgiving
In the states, Thanksgiving is a public holiday, on the fourth Thursday of November. Many employers give their employees the next day (Friday) off as part of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. That makes Thanksgiving the first day of the last major holiday before Christmas and marks the unofficial beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
What is it called Black Friday then?
“Black Friday” was originally referred to financial crisis: On 24 September 1869, there was a crash of the US gold market. Two Wall Street financiers, Jay and Jim, worked together to buy up as much as they could of gold, trying to drive the price extremely high and then sell it for great profits. The conspiracy unravelled that Friday, causing the stock market to fall drastically and bankrupting everyone from Wall Street.
The most commonly repeated story behind the post-Thanksgiving shopping-related Black Friday tradition links it to retailers. As the story goes, after an entire year of operating at a loss (“in the red”) stores would supposedly earn a profit (“went into the black”) on the day after Thanksgiving, because holiday shoppers blew so much money on discounted merchandise. Though it’s true that retail companies used to record losses in red and profits in black when doing their accounting, this version of Black Friday’s origin is the officially sanctioned—but inaccurate—story behind the tradition.
Should you shop? Will you shop?
With the retailers marking down their prices, and if you have a long list of Christmas gifts to buy, this is a good time to get good bargains. If you are willing to tough it out at the crowds. Shopping online is also an alternative.

It’s long been a tradition to pass pearls – natural or cultured – from one generation to the next. Although pearls are not the most durable gems, with proper care they can last several lifetimes.
Because pearls rate Poor to Good in toughness, careless handling can damage them. Knotting the string between pearls prevents them from rubbing together and damaging the nacre.
Acids and chemicals like those in cosmetics and perfume attack nacre. Acidic perspiration eroded the nacre of these cultured pearls. Cleaning pearls with a soft, damp cloth helps prevent moisture loss and removes harmful substances.
It’s a good idea to restring pearls periodically. The string can become worn over time. If it breaks, the pearls might be lost or damaged.
