Surely you know this day in which every shop is crowded because everything is cheaper, but do you know its origin?It comes from the United States. Since the second half of th 20th century there is a very special day in when the family gathers. Thankgiving (last Thursday in November). Some merchants realized that many families used to take the opportunity on that date to give each other Christmas presents in advance. Many of those gifts were envelopes of money so they thought that if they made discounts, people would spend part of those gifts there. In this way, many shops went from red numbers to black numbers on that Friday. This means that the stores that used to lose money up to that date, it is said to be in red numbers, began to have benefits, they are said to be in black numbers. And that’s the history of the Black Friday.
