What is Black Friday, and when did it start?
Black Friday first started in America. As Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday in November, the following Friday is often observed as an unofficial holiday, and retailers got into a habit of offering up great deals the day after Thanksgiving ready for all that Christmas shopping.
Black Friday has been a thing in the UK for over a decade, with retailers in this country first discounting their items on the fourth Friday in November between 2010 and 2013. By 2014, it was a seriously big deal, and more similar to the Black Friday that we partake in today.
While the whole thing originally started as in-shopping events, which resulted in *those* chaotic queue videos you've probably seen on YouTube, the majority of Black Friday discounts now also apply online. Which means you can shop and save comfortably from your own home.
When is Black Friday 2023?
Mark Friday 24th November 2023 in your diary, because that’s when you’ll be wanting to set your alarm nice and early for a day of online shopping. Oh, and don't forget you've also got Cyber Monday following straight after on 27th November.
