Retailers with a profitable day insured and "In the Black" for that day is what I am going to believe. It got to that about half-way thru the explanation link above.

Thank you, Sawdust for the link, that explains it very well. I never knew. It makes it much easier to understand. And that's how it should be, start at a time for Christmas shopping and what ever. Here in pei where I live, they, the stores, are selling Halloween and Christmas stuff at the same time.
I think there should be a law that , you can not advertise your wares until the month that it is in, Christmas, Easter , valentines day or what ever. Sorry about the rant, but that's the way I see it.. Noel

What about the Victoria's Secret stores?

They have sales all the time.

 

Is there a season on what they're selling? :smilewink:

That's a hard one to call. :D  :D

A hard one to measure too, unless you cheat.

For the rest of north America, Black Friday is as explained above.

 

Locally, Black Friday was a day 27 years ago that a Tornado touched down for an hour in a bustling city, and cut a swath over half a mile wide and  25 miles long.

 

It killed 27 people and injured 300 more.

I boycott all stores that use Black Friday for advertising.

We had one hit the high school in '77. They dont refer to it as black friday, but they put a story in the local paper every year on the first week of may

     I agree completely. Orange and black are not Christmas colours in my house! To further your rant, the Christmas season should not be about the amount of time/money you can spend buying gifts, I.M.O. If we didn't fall for the obligatory spending, Black Friday would fall in May, not November, lol.
