Over the last few years, we've begun to adopt the American shopping tradition of Black Friday. In the States Thanksgiving is the 4th Thursday in November and, as the day is a public holiday, the time has been seen as a kickstart to the Christmas shopping season. Many retailers offer huge discounts and sales bargains and in the US last year $57.4 billion was spent on that day alone!!
The name is thought to have originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy traffic following the Thanksgiving break. The term was first recorded as being used in 1961, with broader use across the country by the mid '70's.
