Black Friday; What Is It?
As most look forward to Thanksgiving, there are millions who look forward to Black Friday. Black Friday is a day when prices at shops drop extremely low for a 24 hour period. Companies do so in an attempt to get buyers to spend an enormous amount of cash before Christmas.

Most people prepare ahead of time before jumping into the madness. It always best to know what you want before shopping as to avoid any unnecessary spending during this time.
Where did the tradition come from?

Lately, retailers have been keeping their shops open longer and earlier during this time of year.
Every year around this time, big retailers such as Amazon, Argos, and Morrisons utilize Black Friday to their advantage.
The low prices continue until the following Monday which some call Cyber Monday. This year, it falls on November 27, the Monday after Black Friday.
Despite being two different days, the two special days offer plenty of other differences. Cyber Monday only applies to deals with online shops. Black Friday is for both in shop and online.
Another difference is that Cyber Monday is specifically for 24 hours, where is Black Friday can last for five days.
Where did the name come from?
