While Thanksgiving is all about relaxing with loved ones and stuffing your belly, Black Friday convinces us to get out and about to hit the stores. If you’re crazy about getting a good deal, Black Friday is the holiday for you (but don’t worry – if you’re more indoors-y, Cyber Monday is on the way too!). In the past we may have thought of Black Friday as simple “the day after Thanksgiving”, but these days it’s a multi-billion-dollar shopping holiday.
Black Friday is generally considered to be the beginning of the Christmas shopping period and while it refers specifically to the day after Thanksgiving, most of us think of it as the four-day period that covers Black Friday, the weekend, and Cyber Monday. Right after Thanksgiving, while most of us are still rubbing our turkey-stuffed bellies and chilling out with family, stores are getting ready to offer us serious bargains. Black Friday sales reached almost $2.4 billion in 2017 with $640 million spent on online purchases in the first ten hours alone.
These days, many retailers have bucked the trend of opening at 5 or 6 a.m. and throw their doors open right at midnight. This means you can chow down on Thanksgiving dinner, spend time with your loved ones, and then get your adrenalin racing as you comb your favorite stores for the best deals. You can do your research to find discounts on specific products or fly by the seat of your pants and shop at random. Either way, you’re sure to find a few treasures if you look hard enough. And when you’re finished shopping? Well, then it’s time to head home and refuel with the ultimate sandwich of Thanksgiving leftovers.
