Black Friday (Shopping)
Black Friday is a term used to refer to:
1.Friday the 13th
2.the Friday after U.S. Thanksgiving Day
Friday the 13th
Triskaidekaphobia (from Greek tris meaning "3", kai meaning "and", deka meaning "10" and phobos meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is fear of the number 13 and avoidance to use it; it is a superstition and related to a specific fear of Friday the 13th.
How the Friday After Thanksgiving Came to Be Known as “Black” Friday
It's About Ink Color.In the pre-Quicken, pre-computer era of bookkeeping, standard practice was to use two colors of ink in a handwritten ledger: black and red. Being "in the red" referred to the red ink that historically was used to indicate a loss, or negative income, or being in debt. Being "in the black" referred to the black ink that historically was used to indicate that the business had at least covered costs, or that it had earned a profit.
The real origin of Black Friday
In 1966, Black Friday was the name the Philadelphia Police Department gave to the Friday after Thanksgiving. The police hated the day — massive traffic jams, overcrowded sidewalks, lots of shoplifters — all because downtown Philly stores were filled with shoppers taking advantage of the first holiday sales.
Some stores (such as ToysRus and Best Buy) in order to avoid the negative meaning from black so they use "green" instead of black because the green refers to the color of dollar bills here.

On Friday, 13
07 Philip ordered de Molay and scores of other French Templars to be simultaneously arrested. The arrest warrant started with the phrase : "God is not pleased. We have enemies of the faith in the kingdom.” The Templars were charged with numerous offences (including apostasy, idolatry, heresy, obscene rituals and homosexuality, financial corruption and fraud, and secrecy).
The origin of another superstition comes from "The Last Supper" in "Bible". Judaism’s potentate bribed one of Jesus' Apostle, Judas with 30 Silver coin, and to kiss Jesus as a signal. Then Jesus was arrested and charged with “king of the Jews, self proclaimed”. The next morning Jesus was crucified sentence Crucifixion, Judas hanged himself. Jesus was betrayed by Judas and arrested on Friday, and Judas is the 13 guests on the Last Supper.
