Thanks Justin. Here a black Friday is a Friday which happens to be the 13th of any month, at least that is how I understand it. Quite a different matter. Ina Black Friday is the first day after Thanksgiving. This Friday is economically special in that it is the "Traditional start" to the Christmas shopping season. The term "Black" is taken from the fact that most retail stores operate at a loss through most of the fiscal year and are in the "Red."
