#FruitFULLFriday

So while I had this great idea to post about the History of Black Friday for Day 23 of #BlogLikeCrazy and my #FruitFULLFriday post, yet  I am running out of time to put it all together as I had envisioned it. So this blog post for today almost did not happen. Blame my busy life and my determination to finish strong for #NaNoWriMo.

Nevertheless, I have included a link to a resource on the meaning behind Black Friday.

The retail madness that is  known as Black Friday is an integral part of many Thanksgiving celebrations in the U.S., but this holiday tradition has darker roots.

The term “Black Friday” first recorded use, was not applied to the holiday madness shopping that we participate in,  but to a financial crisis.

To be specific, it was the crash of the U.S. gold market on September 24, 1869.

Read More history behind Black Friday from the History.com  here.
