GUEST,Nancy King at work BS: 'Black Friday' What is this? (28) RE: BS: 'Black Friday' What is this? 29 Nov 04

Like Mmario, I had heard this expression from people who worked in retail, and assumed they called it that because it was a "killer" work day. But recently I heard on the TV news the explanation that it was when retailers went from being "in the red" to being "in the black," in terms of their profit for the year. Sounds reasonable to me.
