It’s almost that time of year for the shopping madness holiday known as Black Friday.

????Falling this year on November 23, the holiday is prime time for deals and steals from your favorite retailers on just about everything.

????But before you head into the frenzy, there may be a few things you want to know… including how this day got its name.

????While there are several theories, History.com says the story behind “Black Friday” appears to have originated in Philadelphia during the 1950’s.????The name coming from the city’s police officers to describe the chaos that happened when shoppers and tourists would come early to town before the Army-Navy football.????But now, retailers look at Black Friday as a retail holiday when stores turn a profit.????This year, most major chains have yet to announce any early deals.

??

??Some stores are choosing to stay closed altogether.

??

??However, some companies like Best Buy will have free shipping for the holiday season.

????Target is also extending their free two day shipping policy all the way until Christmas.

??

??If you’re planning on getting some great deals that day, just don’t overdo it on the turkey the day before.
