Happy Thanksgiving From 3DWalkthroughs.com

The entire staff at 3Dwalkthroughs.com hopes all of our friends, family and clients had a very Happy Thanksgiving.

As everyone knows, the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday. Do you know why? Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, is historically one of the busiest retail shopping days of the year.

The origins of the name Black Friday are fuzzy but there are 2 popular theories as to its origin.

Theory 1- Stores do enough business during the holiday season, which officially begins on Black Friday,taking their financial position from being in the negative(red) to turning a profit(black).

Theory 2- The name Black Friday comes from the stress that one might experience during the holiday season due to the shopping with the crowds.

Ding,ding, ding…we have a winner. While theory 1 might be true, theory 2 seems a lot more appropriate.

We are looking forward to the day when 3D virtual shopping is as common as making a purchase on a site like Amazon. As computer processing speeds are improved and we continue to move towards an immersive 3D internet, a new theory for Black Friday might evolve. One which involves carpal tunnel syndrome or the depression that comes with credit card debt.
