Black Friday What does it really mean .... 

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL .... We wish you many blessings as you head into the Christmas Season. 

We had a great day cooking and really enjoying a day of rest. It was spectacular indeed. 

 

What does Black Friday really mean and why was it called BLACK FRIDAY 

The Term BLACK FRIDAY was first coined in the 1960's  back in the day when we did things by hand .... Really we did things by hand in spread sheets OHHHHH my yes we really did that hand wrote out our financial records. 

We used black and red pens and or pencils yep that is correct...... Red meant we were in the hole black meant we were finally making a profit. 

Therefore the PHRASE BLACK FRIDAY  meant the stores were finally making a profit. 

Makes one think about being in business for yourself it takes all year to make a profit so you have one month to make the money that is above and beyond what it takes to make ends meet each month.

The meaning is something totally different now. Although it does open the Christmas Shopping season it is more about the sales that are supposed to be going on. 

For several years there has been a trend to raise the prices up and then lower then for the

BLACK FRIDAY  specials. 

Either way you go .... if you do attempt to head out and about to shop on BLACK FRIDAY  the crowds will be huge ... Enjoy your day with those you care about or if you are alone that is OK as well have a blessed day full of joy and happiness. 

It is all about Christmas and the real reason for the season CHRISTMAS
