Black Friday Sales 2017. Online Destinations for Amazing Deals & Offers in Nigeria
What’s the Fuss about 2017 Black Friday and When is it happening in Nigeria?
Black Friday is an American tradition that has quickly taken root in Africa, this takes place (24, November 2017) following the Thanksgiving Day. Since 1852, black Friday has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas session although the day is not an official holiday but observed as the day after thanksgiving.
The term, Black Friday was initially applied to a financial crash of the US Gold market on September 24,1869; Two notoriously Wall Street financiers, Jay Gould and Jim Fisk, worked together and bought a lot of Gold from the US market, hoping to sell it at higher prices. On that Friday in September, the conspiracy finally unraveled, sending the stock market into free-fall and bankrupting everyone from Wall Street barons to farmers. However, the true story behind black Friday is not as exactly as it is portrayed by retailers.
Back in the 1950s, it was the term used by the police in the city of Philadelphia to describe the chaos that happens after thanksgiving. When hordes of suburban shoppers and tourists floods into the city in advance of the big Army-Navy football game held on that Saturday every year. Not only would Philly cops not be able to take the day off, but they would have to work extra-long shifts dealing with the additional crowds and traffic. Shoplifters would also take advantage of the bedlam in stores to make off with merchandise, adding to the law enforcement headache. Black Friday thus became a normal word and since then, the one-day sales bonanza has spawned other retail holidays such as cyber Monday.
