How Did Black Friday Get Its Name?
Rumor has it that Philadelphia Police officers came up with the term ‘Black Friday’ as it was the day when locals and tourists all used to travel to the city for an Army-Navy football game, creating an increase in crime, traffic and car accidents. They thought that the term would have negative connotations and deter people from travelling into the city, however, this wasn’t successful.
Another suggestion for the name is that it was the day when retailers moved from the ‘red’ to the ‘black’ when accounting records were color-coded and kept by hand. Red ink would signify a loss and black indicated a profit and, as Black Friday was such a profitable day, their entire records would be black.
