Today is Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year! 🛍🛍🛍

Did you know? It’s believed that the term “Black Friday” was first used in reference to the day after Thanksgiving by Philadelphia police officers in the 1950s to describe the mayhem of tourists visiting the city each year to shop and attend the football game.

The term eventually caught on outside of the region, and retailers marketed it for big sales on holiday shopping.
