Black Friday is a global shopping phenomenon. The day after American Thanksgiving, it was traditionally the start of the holiday shopping season in the US. As retailers routinely began holding big sales on the day after Thanksgiving, it became the busiest shopping day of the year.
Thanks to the internet, Black Friday sales now extend outside of the US and it has become one of the biggest shopping days around the world! This year, Black Friday falls on 24 November. What it means for shoppers is that you can expect fantastic discounts from a huge number of retailers.
