“Black Friday” has hit America with thousands of shops slashing their prices for the biggest shopping day of the year.
Black Friday is the name given to the day after Thanksgiving when shops in America slash their prices.
It’s to encourage people to spend in the run-up to Christmas – and it’s usually the year’s busiest shopping day.
Shoppers queue up, sometimes for days, to get their hands on bargains. Some stores open at midnight on Friday, although this year a few even opened on Thursday!
It’s called Black Friday because it’s often the day that many stores move into the black (which means they start making money or a profit).
The tradition has now started to move around the globe with many UK stores starting to offer discounts.
Even computer giant Apple cut their prices for the special day.
