Black Friday originated in the U.S. in the 1950s, marking kickoff to the holiday shopping season after Thanksgiving. The term was initially coined by Philadelphia police officers in the 1960s to describe the chaos and congestion caused by the influx of shoppers the day after Thanksgiving. Retailers began capitalizing on this day by offering significant discounts and deals, turning it into a major shopping event. Over the years, Black Friday evolved, extending beyond brick-and-mortar stores to online.
