Why it is called Black Friday:In 1961, in Philadelphia, because of heavy traffic and difficulties caused by shopping, newspapers were named Black Friday. Since then, it has been pronounced by this name. Even in the 60’s the name ‘Black Friday’ became so widespread in Philadelphia, some officials who thought the name could have a negative effect, suggested to be changed to ‘Big Friday’ but they were not popular. In the 80s, retailers brought the name Black Friday back to oblivion. Some companies also use other names for this day; Legend Friday, Super Friday, Expected Friday, Fantastic Friday, Black Sale, Legend Days, Legend Discount.
