Q: When is Black Friday 2021?
This year, Black Friday 2021 is on Nov. 26. That being said, the actual date isn’t quite as important as it used to be. Black Friday is now more of a month-long deal and sale event, so keep an eye out for discounts coming from every direction from the moment Halloween ends until the bitter end of Cyber Monday.
Q: What is Black Friday?
Black Friday’s historical meaning traces back roughly half a century when it referred to a day full of heavy traffic and also the day in which businesses in the US started turning a profit for the year. It refers to the Friday after Thanksgiving. Most of that is irrelevant now, though, and Black Friday has become shorthand for the shopping frenzy that happens between the end of October and the beginning of December.
