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."

Son - "What does alahem ahew-akbar mean father?"

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

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.
Guy1: Hey, are you going to do black friday?
Guy2: Fuck no, man, do I want to get trampled by a crowd of people trying to buy a cheap Xbox?

The day after Thanksgiving in the U.S. It's traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year (and sometimes considered to be the beginning of the Christmas season). A.K.A.: Green Friday
"I'm holding out on buying my Christmas gifts this year until black friday rolls around, so I can get the best deals."

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.
Store Executive: We'll have a ton of Black Friday sales to help our company make up for lackluster sales these past 11 months.

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.

The Friday following Thanksgiving. Stores have incredibly low prices for a few hours inciting mass hysteria, death, car crashes, and lost children so you can get 8 DVD players for the price of 3.
Joe: Wanna go check out Target tomorrow?
Zach: No way, man, it's Black Friday.

A holy day of obligation in the Church of the Almighty Dollar.
Don't believe that BS about black friday being named after accountants' black ink. (wtf?) The love of money is the root of all evil. Black symbolizes evil, the true reason for the name.
