The day after Thanksgiving, on which thousands of people flock to the stores like lemmings, risking getting trampled just to save a few dollars even though they have a whole month to do their Christmas shopping.

Also of note: retailers sometimes understock the shelves to create an illusion of scarcity. That "last item in the store" that you just bought was probably one of many "last items" sitting in the store room.
Black Friday makes complete nuts out the sanest people; mothers will kill each other just to get a doll for little Suzie.

Day when American Christmas shoppers wait outside Wal-mart for days, just to get the best price.

Sometimes leads to the trampling/stomping of Wal-mart employees
Jim: I can't wait to go shopping! I'm gonna get all my stuff on Black Friday!

Tim: Why would you wake up at an ungodly hour to go shopping?

Jim: ...Shut it...

The day after Thanksgiving in the US, and typially considered the busiest shopping day of the year. The term "black" is said to come from a large number companies that don't generate profits until that Friday, when they swing from the red into the black.
Disney exec: If we don't boost sales, we'll stay in the red and lose our bonuses!

Other VPs: don't worry, the day after thanksgiving we'll sell enough crap to get into the black.

exec: Thank God for Black Friday!

The craziest day for people in the retail industry. Traditionally stores have a huge sale the day after Thanksgiving where they open their stores at five in the f*****g morning, and people line up outside the store doors to the end of the country for some sort of savings. People have actually been killed on Black Friday... how f****d up is that? It's just another one of the embarrassments of the human race.

Consumers have a love/hate relationship with it, people, who work in stores hate it, and corporate owners of store franchises love it because their yearly profits go up. Black Friday got it's name because the stores profits go from being in the "red zone" to the "black zone." This day and the Christmas season (month of December) is used to make up for the 11 months of lost sales.
Executive: "Sir our Black Friday sales for Walmart are at an all time high this year."

Walmart President: "Good, good. Yes I see those morons on the television killing each other to buy their Tickle-Me-Elmo dolls. Our plans to run out small business and rule the world are beginning to succeed. Gentlemen! Let us raise our glasses in a toast to evil."

1. The craziest shopping day, and the highest store revenue day of the year.

2. The friday after Thanksgiving traditionally used an economic indicator of America's economy.
1. Hey, I almost got hung because I grabbed the last Xbox 360!

2. Business teacher: This friday is black friday and we will see how this economy is REALLY doing.
