Black Friday is the nickname for the Friday after Thanksgiving which has become one of the biggest shopping days of the season. This day marking the beginning of the holiday shopping season began in 1952. The term Black Friday only took hold in the last couple of decades, however.

Over the past ten years or so, Black Friday has become an even bigger deal. Most stores have special sales and deals that outshine any other deals from the rest of the year. This generally marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. There are a lot of companies that have even begun to open their doors and begin their sales on Thanksgiving night.

Do you participate in Black Friday? Do you have a favorite store you choose to shop at?
