It’s that time of the year again, yes it’s Black Friday. Black Friday happens in November every year and in recent years Ireland has gone crazy for this American born trend. The earliest evidence of Black Friday came from Philadelphia and happened the day after thanksgiving. The term came from how busy and contested it would become the day after thanksgiving. The term Black Friday goes as far back as 1869 and has been going ever since.
Black Friday has in recent years become a household shopping event in many Irish homes. Back in the day St Stephen’s Day was the big shopping day before Christmas but now Black Friday is leading the way for one of the biggest shopping day of the year. Offers during Black Friday can range from games, electronics, household, beauty and much more. Black Friday has even reached as far as travel discounts with Ryanair slashing prices across the board.
Although Black Friday has been long in existence in the states, Ireland seen it kick off in November 2014 and it was record breaking. It even caused chaos on the streets where people queued for hours and when doors opened people could be seen rising, pushing and fighting people for deals, real crazy stuff! Websites also had its problems, eagle eye bargain hunters who opted to go online instead of queuing all night in the cold Irish weather didn’t have an easy ride. Websites were known to crash and even have queues to access the site. NUTS!
