The Origins Of Black Friday- How It All Started?

Let's learn the origins of a timeline!

The Year Of 1869

There is a famous story behind the origin of Black Friday. And do you know that it has nothing to do with Christmas shopping? So, this happened 145 years ago. Two Wall Street financial masterminds named Jay Gould and Jim Fisk were fostering a cunning month-long plan.

They started the execution on Friday, 24th September 1869. They planned to rig the Gold market. For weeks they kept on buying huge loads of Gold, making the prices go higher. The plan was to sell the precious metal once it was costly enough. But when President Ulysses Grant understood the plot, he immediately flooded the market with Gold. This made the prices come crashing down. A lot of many speculators lost their fortunes. But the most brutally hit was the farmers. Their wheat and corn came crashing down to half the cost! This day is still remembered as Black Friday because its effects on the American economy were felt until years to come.

The Year Of 1951 & 1952

The next step in the journey was when the first time the term Black Friday was coined in the journal Factory Management And Maintenance. It was regarding workers taking sick leave a day after Thanksgiving to obtain a 4-day long weekend. Though this term never got much momentum. However, another one did! Near about the same time, Police in Philadelphia and Rochester started calling this Friday Black Friday because of the massive overcrowding of sidewalks and retail stores and, let's not forget, increased shoplifting. They called it Black Friday because they had to endure all these pains a day after Thanksgiving when many people were 'enjoying on sick leave'! But why were so many people out of their houses and doing shopping a day after Thanksgiving? It wasn't a trend then!

Well, this day in 1952 is regarded as the beginning of the US Christmas shopping season. And the reason was the start of Santa Claus Parades! It was a bit indirect means of promotion, but it attracted eyeballs nevertheless. Huge departmental stores like the Macy's and Eaton's started promoting their sales through their fancy parades. It became an unwritten rule that no store would launch their Christmas sales advertising before the parade. So, eventually, this 'Black Friday' started becoming the official start of the shopping season! It used to be the day with the highest shopping in the entire year.

The Times Now

Until 2019, Black Friday was the day that witnessed the highest number of shoppers. The shoppers spent a record $729.1 billion on this day which was 4.1% higher than the previous year! But why should you spend on all Terrain scooter black Friday? Let's get to know the
