when a friday falls on the 13th of the month
is thought to be unlucky and is associated with witches, dark spirits and back cats
as many unlucky things happen on this day as any other day of the year although we believe more occur because we are looking out for every little piece of "bad luck"
"its black friday you know, thats unlucky. hope nothing bad happens"

The day after Thanksgiving, when stores decide to open at the asscrack of dawn to start Christmas sales. Most people fall for this ploy and wake up at 4am to fight other mothers for cheap presents.

The name for the day after Thanksgiving. It is named this way because it is supposed to be the day where companies move from deficits to profits for the year, i.e. in a checkbook, going from the red to the black.

should be renamed "black eye friday" due to the fact that thousands of americans forget the spirit of the holiday season by trampling ppl and giving black eyes while buyin stupid gifts that you didnt even mean to buy from stores who purposely hold sales the same day as everybody else.

yet another example of how greedy americans are.
a word of advice: there is this wonderous object called a "computer" and an even more wonderful thing called "the internet". you can do all of your holiday shopping online and the best thing is is that if you order over 100$, shippings free! follow these tips and you will save yourself a pint of blood on each black friday.
