The day after thanksgiving when there's a ton of Christmas sales.
Really, this is a stupid time to have "black friday" because you're so upset at your family for making your thanksgiving hell that you get them crap for Christmas and later feel guilty and regret it and have to go out and buy them something else the week before Christmas, when the stores are crowded with other people doing the exact same thing.
"Aw, shoot, I got my aunt this ugly hair net for Christmas on Black Friday because she let her dog steal my turkey, but yesterday she sent me an early Christmas present so I feel bad. Back to the mall again... *sigh*"

The day after Thanksgiving in the U.S. It's traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year (and sometimes considered to be the beginning of the Christmas season). A.K.A.: Green Friday
"I'm holding out on buying my Christmas gifts this year until black friday rolls around, so I can get the best deals."
The name for the day after Thanksgiving. It is named this way because it is supposed to be the day where companies move from deficits to profits for the year, i.e. in a checkbook, going from the red to the black.
Store Executive: We'll have a ton of Black Friday sales to help our company make up for lackluster sales these past 11 months.
should be renamed "black eye friday" due to the fact that thousands of americans forget the spirit of the holiday season by trampling ppl and giving black eyes while buyin stupid gifts that you didnt even mean to buy from stores who purposely hold sales the same day as everybody else.
yet another example of how greedy americans are.
a word of advice: there is this wonderous object called a "computer" and an even more wonderful thing called "the internet". you can do all of your holiday shopping online and the best thing is is that if you order over 100$, shippings free! follow these tips and you will save yourself a pint of blood on each black friday.

Joe: Wanna go check out Target tomorrow?
Zach: No way, man, it's Black Friday.
A holy day of obligation in the Church of the Almighty Dollar.
Don't believe that BS about black friday being named after accountants' black ink. (wtf?) The love of money is the root of all evil. Black symbolizes evil, the true reason for the name.
