How Many Black Friday In A Year?
Luckily, there is only one Black Friday in a year and it falls on the first Friday after Thanksgiving or the fourth Friday of November.
If some giant multinational companies could, they would have made each and every Friday a Black Friday.
Don’t get me wrong, but it’s quite true. They make a lot of money out of this day.
Do you know? In 2015, the king of e-commerce Amazon.com, launched Black Friday deals in July. However, they tried to name it differently “Amazon Prime Day”.
It is just an example; a lot of companies try to do this all over the world with different names.
I am not judging whether is it good or bad, but one thing is true we would have spent a lot of money unnecessarily if we have more than one Black Friday.

Dark Truth of Black Friday – Slave Trade?
According to some historians, the term “Black Friday” originated from the days of Slave trade in America.
Back then, on the first Friday after Thanksgiving, some masters sold their underperforming black slaves at lower prices.
Because of lower prices, a lot of people spent their money to buy them.
However, the theory is quite controversial and less known as its origin.
