The question has provided a bit of cultural enlightenment for me too.

I've been seeing lots of email with "Black Friday sales" in my junk tray, and mistakenly thought they were referring to Friday 13th December - as it's tradition "downunder" for any Friday 13th to be referred to as Black Friday.

Happy Thanksgiving all, anyway

Happy thanksgiving everyone.

Interesting statement in the explanation that this is when many retailers start their Christmas season - it seems that American retailers have more of a sense than English ones: in most of England the "special Christmas offers" start appearing some time in August. I don't know whether this stupidity has penetrated Wales yet, and it hasn't reached the parts of Scotland that I get to in August, but in England it appears to be pretty well universal - not in the sense that every retailer does it, but in the sense that at least one retailer in every shopping mall or on every shopping street does it.


Black Friday is when the most intense sales are held in the United States. However, Christmas items are for sale by September or October in many stores. Often, the Christmas decorations will be right beside the Halloween candy and decorations.

[The Friday after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday in the US].

Ok, that was something totally new for me, editors of SSC should know that this kind of deeply American culture questions are so difficult (near impossible) to anyone who lives outside the US.

If you read English newspapers, you will notice that "Black Friday" is used in England too, at least by some journalists, to mean the day after the fourth Thursday in November (and I've seen "Green Friday" in English newspapers too).

I had never heard black friday referred to before now, but ever since this question its been popping up everywhere as british retailers jump on this american tradition to try and drum up trade.

Steve must be prescient or have an inside track to british retailers
