The Friday that comes once in every girls' life, in which she MUST decide on which seat in her friend's car should she take. Will she be kicking in the front seat or sitting in the back seat for the rest of her life? On this day, partying, and fun fun fun fun must be had. Some girls are even rumored to have an epiphany--realizing that Thursday was yesterday, today is Friday, tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes afterwards.
Rebecca woke up to Black Friday, so she had a bowl of cereal and missed the bus to do some partyin' partyin' (Yeah!).

The Friday after Thanksgiving when ignorant Americans stand in line for 13 hours and stampede over innocent bystanders in order to get a deal they could've gotten 3 weeks ago on that George Foreman grill if they would have used that fucking coupon. As a retail employee, this is THE WORST day of the year.
Dude, I don't wanna go to work today, it's Black Friday.

Traditionally the day after Thanksgiving where most consumers start their holiday shopping. Many (if not all) retail outlets offer sales to bring in said customers. It is called 'black' friday because it is considered the 'official' start of the holiday shopping season, much like Black Tuesday was the start of the Depression (1929 Stock Market Crash). In addition, the 'black' also refers to when paper ledgers were still used, black ink referred to profit. Although Black Friday is the day where the highest volume of consumer traffic is seen, it does not carry the highest volume of sales. Usually this day is Christmas Eve or the last Saturday before Christmas. Recently some retail outlets have begun referring to Black Friday as Green Friday, to curb the common association of the color black to something of bad or negative nature.

The Friday after Thanksgiving when Chinese people and Indian people unite for their equivalent of the Million Man March in front of all the electronics stores.
On the night before Black Friday....

Dad - "Don't forget your fifth prayer tonight, Akshay. We must respect Allah so that we get the coupon for the plasma TV special. Alahem-ahew-akbar."

Dad - "That we may be so fortunate as to also get the coupon for free delivery."
