Black Friday & Christmas: How Are They Related?

black friday and christmas how are they related

All the craze began in 1960, in the USA, when the term” Black Friday” was used to announce the start of the Christmas shopping season, the Friday after Thanksgiving. Historically, the name came from the police in Philadelphia in the same period, who complained about the streets being full of people, blocking all circulation.

However, in the retail sense,” Black Friday” signifies stores switching from red to black ink.

But why the huge success, though? This came at the moment retailers realized how good of an opportunity this was to draw never-ending crowds of clients in their store by offering ground-breaking deals, by cutting prices extremely low. Even more, in the era of technology, online shopping offers a better environment for this to unfold, clients being able to know before-hand if their favorite products will be on sale, they don’t have to wait in lines in the cold, and they can easily search for their product elsewhere if it is not available anymore.

In these circumstances, it is no wonder that more than half of the Thanksgiving week shoppers decide to wait for Black Friday. But what are they looking for? If you are eager to find out what your Christmas present from someone might be, or you are the one who needs to buy the presents and you just need some inspiration, see the list below, we put together a few of the products you will find to have some of the greatest deals.


Some of the items that have the best bargains are usually phones, even the latest models. This is why we talk about the iPhone 12, iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, which have such developed technology that run without any trouble any type of app or command you could think of, from a simple game like an online casino to more complicated, maybe work-related tasks.
