Just what is Black Friday?
With a few conspiracy stories and some tweaking of the truth, Black Friday has a long and hazy history. The first known use of the phrase ‘Black Friday’ referred to a crash of the U.S. gold market in the 19th century, when two particularly shifty financiers on Wall Street tried to do some funny things with the price of gold. Since then, the phrase has been attributed to all sorts of tales, but it is now generally seen as a friendly nod to the days when businesses marked their losses in red ink and their profits in black.
When are Black Friday deals available?
Sales traditionally take place after Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Kathmandu will offer Black Friday specials also this year.
