Today though, why not take a quick detour and check out the very best Black Friday predictions from instead?

A shotgun look first at the origins of this global retail frenzy then we’ll tease you with just some of what we’ll have on offer next week here at

How Did Black Friday Start?

While Black Friday is now synonymous with Amazon super-sales, and of course the legendary Smart Home sale, its origins and credibility go back way further…

An informal name given to the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday marks the official start of the Christmas season. Back in the 50s, many people called in sick to give themselves a long weekend and a headstart on their Christmas shopping. Many businesses decided to lump this in as an official holiday rather than locking horns with employees.

Philadelphia police were the first to use the name Black Friday to describe the carnage as tourists and locals alike flooded in for the monumental Army/Navy football game that weekend in 1952.

Despite the negative connotations of the name and an unsuccessful attempt to remarket it as Big Friday, by the time of the excesses of the 80s, retailers managed to pivot Black Friday into a positive. By the 2000s, Black Friday had become a worldwide phenomenon.
