The day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday because the big holiday sales on that date put most stores in the black, big profits. Black Friday is a better term to describe the mood of harried retail sales people putting up the onslaught of greed on that day.
I hate the holidays, the crowds, the feeding frenzy for the perfect Xmas gift, the best deal. I stay the hell away from the mall. Instead, I go for a walk, enjoying the peacefulness of downtown Plattsburgh... until I see this stuff:
