When is Black Friday 2023?
Black Friday falls the day after American Thanksgiving; this year, it’s on Friday, November 24.
The Black Friday concept originally came from the idea that stores, after operating at a loss—a.k.a. “in the red”—for most of the year, went “into the black” on the day after Thanksgiving, when Americans traditionally start their Christmas shopping.
While Black Friday originated state-side, Black Friday sales are incredibly popular in Canada, too.
