A History of Black Friday

Back in the 1960s, Black Friday was an unenthusiastic term used by the City of Philadelphia Police department to describe the day each year between Thanksgiving and the Army–Navy Game when people liked to shop. Officers braced themselves as streets became overcrowded with shoppers and stores were nearly mobbed from opening to closing times.

The resulting traffic jams were hardly seen as a stimulus for good business, as traffic cops tried to control crowds and jaywalkers, who were dashing around on buying sprees.
