BLACK FRIDAY — I always thought the name sounded so ominous and dark. Kind of like Ash Wednesday in Catholic countries. I could just picture all the priests, knights, fair ladies, beggars and thieves running around cobbled streets of medieval European cities and towns. You can imagine my disappointment when I finally looked up the meaning of Black Firday and found out it was all about profit. According to Wikipedia, Black Friday refers to retailers finally starting to make a profit after the fall slump in sales. More precisely, the Black Friday sales bring them out of the “red” or negative numbers in accounting into black, positive, numbers.
