Often referred to as "Black Friday" in the U.S., the Friday after Thanksgiving marks the start of the Christmas and holiday shopping season.
Black Friday is the one day shoppers can find the best deals on just about any product, online and in stores. Mattresses, laptops, TVs, clothing, kitchen appliances, and more drop to all-time low prices, often with very limited stock.
But have you ever wondered where the holiday shopping extravaganza got its name from?
