“In the United States, Black Friday began as a one-day sale the day following Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday shopping season.”
Black Friday, one of the major sales events in the UK, takes place every year on the fourth Friday of November. This year’s sale event will take place on the 26th November 2021. On this day, many retailers will dramatically slash their prices marking the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
