What the reason behind calling it Black Friday?

When I first heard someone saying “Black Friday” is coming, a thought came that it’s may be a day for sad people or may be some really bad incident happened in past  so this is why people still remember it. But when I dig deep-down and started the journey to know what this Black Friday is. So got to know the actual reason and meaning behind this event. The closest reason to celebrate this day is goes like: This huge discounted event happens when the year is almost about to over and this is the time when retailers do final maintenance of their financial sheets. In those financial statements, red ink is used to mark loss and black to mark gain this is why the biggest sales day is named as Black Friday. This specific day let retailers mark some of their highest profits. And this leads them to improve their final business recordings, where they show losses in red and gains in black. However, most probably, this day let the brands and retailers manage their financial gains’ side heavy, and in shopping arena it’s worth to offer best deals to the consumers. And consumers also jump to grab the superb deals.
