The day after Thanksgiving and official start of the Christmas shopping season. When stores open anytime in between midnight and 5 AM and set everything on sale. To promote the sale, a mass amount of advertising is used, causing everyone to forget their is a month until Christmas so they go to hell and back to get all their holiday shopping out of the way one day not even in the month of the holiday.
I haven't slept in almost 50 hours because my mom shoved us all in the car immediately after Thanksgiving dinner and made us go to Black Friday sales all damn day.

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 the holidy/christmas shopping season starts. It is called Black Friday because it is on Friday and traditionally the day that retailers finances go in the black, i.e., become profitable. In the red, on other other hand, implies that a company is operating at a loss, i.e. unprofitable.
A sharp rise in profits from holiday sales pushed the firm in the black which is typically referred to as Black Friday in the retailing world.

A disease that hits millions of Americans the day after Thanksgiving. It causes people to fight over objects and to trample innocent bystanders.
I've got a bad case of Black Friday this year.

The day after Thanksgiving when people who are dumber than shit wait in line for 3 hours at stores to save $5. These are the same fucking morons who think that all places except stores should close on this day, even though it is NOT a holiday.
It's Black Friday. Except for work, I'm not leaving the house. Can't stand idiots!
