Black Wednesday

Is Black Friday different from Black Monday?
Do you happen to have injured yourself while getting what you wanted to buy in the shopping rush in stores on Black Friday?
Does “black” mean profitable?

“Wednesday” should read “Friday.” I don’t know why I wrote “Wednesday.” I am to go to a dentist on Wednesday.

You are correct, “Black Friday” is traditionally the day of the year that businesses have covered all of their expenses for the year, and begin to make the profits. So in accounting terms, they go from being “in the red” to being “in the black”. This refers to the color ink accountants used to denote positive and negative numbers.
