Black Friday 2021 will be celebrated on November 26th. The shopping day, like every year, will be an opportunity to shop online taking advantage of super offers and discounts. Saveone also has unique surprises in store for its customers, which exceptionally will last the entire month of November. But what are the origins and reasons for Black Friday?
Long queues outside the stores. E-commerce targeted by thousands of users simultaneously. People of all ages camp out for an entire night outside shopping centers to get their hands on the object of their desires. Over the years, Black Friday has always known how to put on a show, to the point of transforming itself into a truly international event and extending well beyond the 24-hour perimeter. Shopping day , born in the United States, is now practiced all over the world and is considered the official start of Christmas shopping. Few, however, know its origins and the reason for its name .
At the roots of Black Friday
The first Black Friday was organized in 1924 by the Macy's store chain. The Friday following Thanksgiving (a heartfelt North American holiday) a fantastic parade took over New York to kick off the Christmas period. Since then, the shopping day became an institution, which always falls between the end of November and the first days of December, precisely on the Friday following Thanksgiving (which in the USA is celebrated on the fourth or last Thursday of November).
If the start date of this tradition is practically certain, the origins of the name Black Friday are less certain. According to some, the color chosen would be that of the ink used by accountants to record business progress. Thanks to the crazy shopping Friday, in fact, this would go from red (loss) to black (active). According to another version, however, the mood of all those who find themselves involved in the traffic chaos that Black Friday causes is dark.
Black Friday 2021, the pandemic does not slow down discounts
In 2020, Black Friday was dressed in particular notes. After difficult months of closure due to Covid-19 and the global pandemic, everyone was hoping for a new beginning. The Friday of the big discounts, however, happened right on the eve of a new and harsh lockdown, which lasted until the beginning of 2021. The difficulties , however, did not slow down the discounts and certainly will not succeed this year either. The worst phase of the crisis now seems definitively behind us and people want to go back to shopping in a carefree way , to look to the future with confidence and to have fun. And Black Friday is the best time to satisfy your cravings without too many worries about your wallet.
