Today is BLACK FRIDAY. What’s that? Something scary? Something dreadful? The end of the world?
Noooo! It’s the first big shopping day (NO! EVENT!) at the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the USA and Canada. It is sooo big!
So why BLACK? Because it’s the day the shops make profits! They are not IN THE RED (debt). They are IN THE BLACK (profit)!!
Notice today’s expressions …
- To be in the red
- To be in the black
- Profits (not benefits!)
