What is Black Friday? And is it Christian?

Posted by Laura White  ·  Be the first to comment

Almost without notice, a new event has been settled into the calendar, amongst the fireworks of Guy Fawkes and the reflections of Advent, a shopping holiday has come into force here in the UK: Black Friday.

Imported over from our good friends in America, Black Friday is celebrated the day after Thanksgiving - for many, this tend to be the unofficial start to the Christmas shopping season.

Whilst the majority of us don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (although the idea of another Turkey Dinner sounds very appealing!), more and more people are looking for Black Friday deals each year.

Please don’t be alarmed, the name isn’t quite as dark as it suggests. The “Black” in Black Friday actually refers to businesses profits moving, for the first time, from being ‘in the red’ to ‘in the black’.

Since then, the day has received some bad press as people grapple for the best possible discount on a new TV or the latest must-have Christmas gift. Which is not something we would like to encourage!

However, if you like the sound of a bargain without the hassle of leaving the house, we will be hosting our annual Black Friday flash sale from Friday 24th November onwards - check back on the day for excellent savings.

And don’t worry, our fantastic Cyber Monday offers will also be available from Monday 27th November!
