Try Doing These Things This Black Friday

Black Friday got its name back in 1961, when pedestrians and cars overcrowded the streets of Philadelphia in a rush to buy Christmas gifts the day after Thanksgiving. Several decades later, as the term gained popularity, this explanation was replaced by the one that still sticks today—Black Friday is the day of the year when retailers finally start generating profits.

Get out your pocketbook and prepare to shell out some cash, because the Friday after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year!


Retailers wanted to make the name “Black Friday” mean something positive. To them, the Friday after Thanksgiving was one of the most profitable days of the year. To compensate, they decided to follow the adage, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” Retailers changed the name to reflect their success. Accountants use black to signify profit when recording each day’s book entries. They use red to indicate loss.


So today on the occasion of Black Friday, let’s follow these rules 😉


1)            Create a new tradition


Establish an annual tradition with friends or family members. Whether it means waking each other up at 4:00 AM to hit the stores at 6:00, or staying home in your pajamas and eating Thanksgiving leftovers together, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to start a new yearly practice.


2)            Donate winter clothes to people in need


Don’t want to shop on Black Friday? Gather up all the winter items you no longer use and deliver them to your local shelter or thrift store. With winter just around the corner, there are families who will be grateful to receive the extra help.


3)            Throw a Thanksgiving leftover potluck


Half the fun of Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Invite your friends or family over for Thanksgiving feast number two, and invite them to bring along their leftovers.


Happy Black Friday To All You People Out There 🖤
