The 'Black Friday' or 'Black Friday' is the day that opens the holiday shopping season in the United States. It takes place one day after Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of the month of November.

 

Black Friday

It is known as the Black Friday or "Black Friday" the day that begins the season of Christmas shopping in the United States. It takes place one day after the day of "Thanksgiving", which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of the month of November. Some attribute the name to that on this day begins the era in which traders manage to change the red numbers to blacks. Others, however, claim that the adjective "black" has its origin on November 19, 1975, when The New York Times first used the epithet referring to the mess of traffic and the chaos that had occurred that year in the city due to the discounts of the day after "Thanksgiving".

In 2010, the company Apple decided to import this American tradition to Spain and since then this celebration has been gaining more and more strength. The main companies offer mega-discounts in their online and physical stores, and hundreds of people congregate around the shopping centers to catch the best offers.

 

The black friday is a very relevant day for global commerce, both by sales volume and to mark the beginning of the Christmas campaign. The stores offer considerable discounts on their products in an attempt to advance Christmas sales. This date, in the same way as the cyber monday, both of Anglo-Saxon tradition, increasingly become more relevant to Spanish electronic commerce. Black friday falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving Thursday, a holiday in the United States. The cyber monday is the following Monday.

The term black friday originated in Philadelphia where it was used to describe the dense traffic of people and vehicles that crowded the streets the day after Thanksgiving. The use of this term began around 1961 among police officers in charge of traffic regulation, becoming popular around 1966, and extending to the rest of the states as of 1975.

Later, an alternative explanation arose, referring to the term "black" to the accounts of businesses, which go from red to black numbers thanks to the surplus.

Black Friday is not officially a holiday, but many entrepreneurs see this day as a holiday along with Thanksgiving, giving employees a day off, in fact increasing the total number of potential buyers. It has usually been the day of greatest commercial movement of the whole year since 2005.

According to the sales of the dealers, the end of each quarter and specially the end of the year is the best time to buy a car. In this period it is more possible to get a bigger discount.

If you want to buy a new model, wait some months after launching to avoid buying at the highest price.
