About Black Friday

关于黑色星期五

Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days in the USA. There are two popular theories as to why the day after Thanksgiving Day is called Black Friday. One theory is that the wheels of vehicles in heavy traffic on the day after Thanksgiving Day left many black markings on the road surface, leading to the term Black Friday.

黑色星期五是美国疯狂购物日之一。有两种流行说法可以解释为什么感恩节之后的这一天被称为“黑色星期五”。其中一种说法是感恩节之后这一天拥挤的交通会使车轮在路面留下很多黑色痕迹,就有了“黑色星期五”这个说法。

The other theory is that the term Black Friday comes from an old way of recording business accounts. Losses were recorded in red ink and profits in black ink. Many businesses, particularly small businesses, started making profits prior to Christmas. Many hoped to start showing a profit, marked in black ink, on the day after Thanksgiving Day.

另外一种说法就是“黑色星期五”这个词源于传统商业记账方式。红笔记录赤字,黑笔记录盈利。很多生意,尤其是小买卖,在圣诞节之前就开始盈利,很多商家希望在感恩节之后这一天就能开始用黑笔记录盈利。
