BLACK FRIDAY SPECIALS NOW THRU DEC. 1st

In Philadelphia, on the day after Thanksgiving, the streets would become so congested with shoppers that it was termed 'Black Friday'. In recent years, that phrase has made its way around America and is now a common name for the day after Thanksgiving. 

Even in Europe, Black Friday is becoming more common as retailers (probably led by the US internet sellers such as Amazon) use it to raise awareness of the shopping period and offer many sale bargains on that day.
