Slide 3: Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday occurs between the 23rd and the 29th of November. http://blog.cleveland.com/business/2008/11/Target_Black_Friday_Line_1.jpg Slide 4: Black Friday is not an official holiday, but as many workers have the day off as part of the Thanksgiving holiday, this increases the number of potential shoppers. http://www.wiretotheear.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/black_friday.jpg Slide 5: Some of the larger retailers (depending on the location) such as Sears, Best Buy, Macy's, Toys "R" Us, Walmart, and Target have been reported to open as early as midnight on the start of Black Friday in localized areas and remain open for 24 hours throughout the day until midnight the following Saturday. http://pinoytutorial.com/techtorial/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/target-long-line-black-friday.jpg Slide 6: Retailers often decorate for the Christmas and holiday season weeks beforehand. http://tokyofashion.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/FrancFranc-Shibuya.jpg On opening, retailers offer doorbuster deals and loss leaders to draw people to their stores. http://imgs.sfgate.com/c/pictures/2006/11/28/bu_retail25mjm.jpg Slide 7: In the United States, it is very popular to start Christmas shopping on Black Friday.

As shopping is a very popular activity on Black Friday and many stores have sales or special bargains, it can be incredibly busy in stores and malls. There can also be congestion on roads to popular shopping destinations. http://img.timeinc.net/time/daily/2007/0711/black_friday_1119.jpg There are two popular theories as to why the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday. : There are two popular theories as to why the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday. One theory says that it is because of the extremely heavy traffic on the roads on this day. The wheels of the vehicles left a lot of black markings on the road surface, leading to the term Black Friday. http://www.vancouversun.com/technology/2272951.bin?size=620x400 Slide 10: The other theory is that it comes from an old-fashioned way of recording business accounts. Losses were recorded in red ink and profits in black ink. Many businesses, particularly small retail stores, only started making profits in the run up to Christmas. This theory does not apply to many large corporations, but may be a fact of life for smaller businesses. http://www.ionlinephilippines.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/Black-Friday-2009-Walmart.jpg Slide 11: The events on Black Friday are often followed closely by the local media. Television shows may show films of people queuing at night and then emerging victoriously from the store with the items they wanted to purchase. The large number of people shopping and the competition to obtain the cheapest goods means that some people now avoid the stores on Black Friday. http://earth911.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/j.-McPherson-Black-Friday-300x199.jpg Slide 12: Some groups organize a "Buy Nothing Day" on Black Friday to protest at the increasing level of consumerism in the USA and Canada. http://www.urban75.org/photos/newyork/images/revd-billy-union-square-04.jpg Slide 13: Wal-Mart, founded in 1962, is a discount department store.

The earliest known reference to "Black Friday" in this sense was made by Bonnie Taylor-Blake of the American Dialect Society, in a 1966 publication on the day's significance in Philadelphia: JANUARY 1966 -- "Black Friday" is the name which the Philadelphia Police Department has given to the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. As it usually brings massive traffic jams and over-crowded sidewalks as the downtown stores are mobbed from opening to closing. Slide 15: The term Black Friday began to get wider exposure around 1975, as shown by two newspaper articles from November 29, 1975, both datelined Philadelphia.
