Black Friday is the official start of the holiday shopping season. The Friday right after Thanksgiving (this coming Friday).
Everyone is off work and is going to go start their Christmas shopping. You don't even want to go near the stores on that day. I heard that some stores are opening on Midnight Thursday night to get ready for the crowd, and there will be a huge crowd. I saw on tv where the employees of stores were practicing getting ready for all the people.
Simply put, it's the biggest shopping day of the year.
