You probably know, but Black Friday comes straight from the United States. A shopping event that has gradually grown within our Swiss borders. Today, this day of shopping devoted to discounts and promotions has become an unmissable event for all lovers of good deals. Crazy reductions in fashion, beauty, high-tech without forgetting household appliances or even decoration and furnishings have been observed. In short, everything we could need. If you too participated in the 2020 edition, you know it as well as we do!
There is no official inventor of this sales day. This day of crazy promotions was introduced in the 1960s the day after Thanksgiving in the United States to boost trade and kick off Christmas shopping. The merchants then began to offer absolutely exceptional discounts on a whole day causing the enthusiasm that we know today. Then, little by little, Black Friday crossed the Oceans to settle in China and Europe. Why “black”? Explanation: instead of writing their accounts in red ink because they were in deficit, traders, by disposing of their stocks, could use black ink.
Black Friday is a sales day that takes place on Friday, hence the name “Friday”. Nevertheless, why “black”. Several rumors exist on this subject, but we do not have a definitive answer. One of them would say it was related to the color of the merchant’s books. The deficit accounts then marked in red would have turned positive on Black Friday, with the use of black writing. The other hypothesis comes from the traffic jams caused by the Thanksgiving weekend, the police and taxi drivers then renamed the Friday and Saturday of Thanskgiving from Black Friday and Black Saturday.
