What is Black Friday?

How long does Black Friday last?

Actually, Black Friday lasts only one day, i.e. 24 hours. However, many vendors now offer discounts for longer than just one day.

For this reason, retailers began to outbid each other with the best special offers to attract customers. Black Friday did not make it to Europe until 2006, when Apple extended the discounts offered in the U.S. to Germany. However, Black Friday only became popular in Europe around 2015.
