Black Friday is here, the day where bargain hunters across the world try to grab themselves great shopping deals heading into the christmas period.
Black Friday was originally an American tradition that took place on the day after Thanksgiving each year. Retailers offer huge discounts on masses of products in an attempt to persuade shoppers to spend their hard earned money in the run-up to Christmas. But retailers across the world have jumped on the bandwagon in recent years so bargain hunters all over get the chance at some festive deals.
The name 'Black Friday' originated in Philadelphia in the early sixties, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.
In America, the day has a reputation for turning usually rational, mild-mannered shoppers into crazy bargain hunters! Fights frequently break out and extra security is required.
