Black Friday is a day of discounts and reduced prices where shoppers are able to purchase quality items for less in the run up to Christmas.
Each year it has grown exponentially, with more and more people taking part in the annual event.
Where did it come from?
Originally founded in the US, the term was first used in 1951 to describe the chaos caused by the scale of workers calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving in order to have a four-day weekend.
It first came to the UK on a small scale in 2003. It wasn’t until a campaign by American company Wal-Mart in 2013 that Black Friday as we know it took hold. The two years that the event has taken place in the UK on a large scale have incurred record breaking sales across the country, and shoppers getting their hands on some of the best deals.
