Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year in the United States and is growing in other countries around the world. In fact, in early 2000's, it became the biggest shopping day of the year. It takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving in the U.S. to celebrate the start of Christmas shopping season. Many stores have major sales and are open early in the morning for doorbuster sales. Some stores open the day and night before and remain open throughout the night.
With online shopping taking over so much of the marketplace and due to giants like Amazon offering deals, Black Friday has spread to many other countries including Canada, Mexico and even Britain. And with so many stores competing to offer the best deals, Black Friday has inspired additional shopping days with stores starting their deals on Thanksgiving, continuing to Cyber Monday and Cyber week.
