What is Black Friday? 

Black Friday is the name given to the day after Thanksgiving in America. 

It is the fourth Friday of November and it is the start of the Christmas shopping season in the US. 

The name has been used since 1952 - but did not become widely used until the 2000s. 

Retailers often offer sales on Black Friday to encourage shoppers to get out and shop.
