What is Black Friday? - GreenNinja - 11-29-2013

Probably this is Black Friday. But why is this day called Black Friday?

Black Friday is the very next Friday after The ThanksGiving Day in the USA. It also regarded as the beginning of Christmas shopping season.

The reason it is called black Friday is that it is generally the point in the year when retailers will pass the breakeven point and show a profit. So the ledgers go from red ink to black ink.
