Wooooppppp it’s finally here, the day we’ve all been waiting for. No it’s not prosecco day, although we love that day too. The day famous across the entire world has landed, yes it’s BLACK FRIDAY. This day is not a new one, it dates back as far as 1890 in Philadelphia USA. It first started the day after thanksgiving in America and the term came from how busy and congested it got when everyone came out the day after thanksgiving, it quickly turned into madness and people would go mad for a discount.
Black Friday goes as far back as 1869 but has only in recent years picked up in Ireland and each year we can see it getting bigger and bigger. Before we witnessed the craziness of Black Friday the big shopping day in any Irish home was the day after St Stephen’s Day. This was one of the major days before Christmas but we can now see Black Friday is taken over in terms of sales and traffic to websites and shops. Black Friday deals can be got all over Ireland and all over each sector, nothing is off limits as everyone jumps on board the Black Friday madness.
People in America have been known to queue in the cold and darkness for hours upon hours just in the quest for a bargain. Us Irish seen this and thought they were mad but Ireland is starting to get onto this Black Friday trend just as much as the yanks do. Black Friday seen a massive surge in Ireland in the year 2014 and it was record breaking. As the shops opened, some as early as 6am, people could be seen rushing, pushing and just going mad to get into the shop and get a good bargain.
