We all know that Black Friday starts the Howl-iday shopping season. It's a time for super savings, special bargains, and stores opening as early as 3 AM so shoppers can grab that special bargain.
But...do you know where the term "Black Friday" actually comes from?
Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving...and the meaning is based on accounting terms. It is the time when merchants go from "being in the red" (which signifies a loss) to "being in the black" (which signifies a profit).
Let the howl-iday shopping begin!
PS: Be sure to look for the key words "November Contest" for how to win either the Paw Print Locket Necklace or the Paw Print Business Card Case!
