Offers for Black Friday 2021
Friday 26 November, the last Friday of this month will be the so-called Black Friday 2021. This is a date that many consumers expect due to a large number of offers, deals and discounts that are offered on this day.
Black Friday is a day when you can find thousands of offers in stores. Usually, the discounts are not only on Friday, but they also continue throughout the weekend.
The Friday in question is of American origin, but the reason for its name is not entirely clear. But why is it called that way?
While some believe that the name comes from the good profits of stores from the sale after Thanksgiving, the story tells otherwise.
The first Black Friday came in 1869, after financier Jay Gould and his partner the businessman James Fisk tried to speculate the gold market. Eventually, this raised the price of gold and caused the market to collapse.
Others believe it all began in 1975, when The New York Times first used the name Black Friday due to record sales on the day after Thanksgiving.
When is Black Friday?
Every year Black Friday falls on a different date, but it is always the day after Thanksgiving. This is the last Friday of November, which this year is Friday 26 November.
