Every year, many countries around the world anticipate Black Friday and for good reason too. It’s the time of the year when expensive products can be snapped up for a special deals and more!
Did you know that the first use of the term “Black Friday”, was applied to the crash of U.S gold market on September 24, 1869?
Two Wall Street financiers, Jay Gould and Jim Fisk, worked together to buy up as much as they could of the nation’s gold, hoping to drive the price sky-high and sell it for astonishing profits. On that Friday in September, the conspiracy finally unraveled, sending the stock market into free-fall and bankrupting everyone from Wall Street barons to farmers.
Fast forward to present day and Black Friday has become a day to anticipate. This year, international Black Friday falls on November 23.
This year’s particular Black Friday promises to be epic because online store Jumia’s Black Friday sales will not just run for a day but rather, a whole month.
