Why do we celebrate “Gold Friday”?
By now, almost everyone knows the term “Black Friday”. Where does the name come from? Why is this particular Friday called “Black Friday”?
Black Friday is the day to find the best deals on just about any product online and in stores. Furniture, mattresses, televisions, laptops, clothing, kitchen appliances and more are offered at discounted prices, often with very limited inventory. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving (US holiday), which is traditionally also a holiday for many workers. It is usually a day full of special shopping deals and great discounts and is considered the start of the holiday shopping season.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a name used for two unrelated occasions. In the U.S. today, Black Friday is most commonly used for the day after Thanksgiving, which is often considered the first day of the holiday shopping season and is known for its retail discounts. Black Friday is always the Friday after Thanksgiving, which is always the fourth Thursday in November. Many believe that “Black Friday” gets its name from the fact that retail stores go from red to black on this day.
Where does the name Black Friday come from?
Historically, Black Friday has been associated with days of economic stress, as opposed to days of booming economic success. The first Black Friday occurred in 1869 when financier Jay Gould and railroad entrepreneur James Fisk attempted to corner the gold market, ultimately leading to a financial panic and market collapse.
In the 1980s, the concept of Black Friday as we know it today emerged. While the terms “black” and “red” are used in the business world to describe profits and losses, this explanation in the U.S. for one of the busiest shopping days of the year did not actually emerge until the 1980s, some 20 years after the term “Black Friday” entered common usage.
However, bargain hunting is not limited to this Friday in November. Cyber Monday is originally a Black Friday for online shopping. Meanwhile, almost all online retailers offer discount promotions and special offers during Cyber Week in November, and some start doing so even before.
Black Friday in Germany
The concept of Black Friday is relatively new in Germany. Many Germans know Black Friday, although Thanksgiving is not celebrated here at all. Apple was one of the first companies to introduce Black Friday to the German market in 2006.
In Germany the last few years, the “Black Friday” advertising of retailers refers to the “Black Week” and “Black Shopping”. Unlike in the U.S., Black Friday is not a holiday in Germany, but retailers have successfully used the event to boost sales.
And since we are all about gold (coins), we simply celebrate “Gold Friday” every year.
