In which U.S. city did the term "Black Friday" originate?

Philadelphia

 

17 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

PHILADELPHIA

Answer: The name “Black Friday” originated in Philadelphia, when it was coined by the Philadelphia Police Department in 1966 to describe the chaos caused by massive traffic jams, car accidents and congested sidewalks that resulted from the shopping day after Thanksgiving. Contemporary use of the term now refers to it as the point in the year at which retailers begin to turn a profit, thus going from being "in the red" to being "in the black". Since 2006, there have been 11 deaths and 108 injuries as a result of Black Friday events.

Obviously not dgrimm!! Doesn't seem any know and they really don't care?????

Answer: Thanksgiving comes to Canada first. And on a Monday, to boot. Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the second Monday of October in Canada and celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year. Thanksgiving has been officially celebrated as an annual holiday in Canada since November 6, 1879, when Parliament declared a national day of thanksgiving. Its date has moved around several times, but in 1957, Thanksgiving was proclaimed an annual event to occur on the second Monday of October. In Canada, Thanksgiving falls on the same day as Columbus Day in the United States.

SHOP.ORG

Answer: Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. The term "Cyber Monday" was invented by a marketing team at Shop.org, a division of the National Retail Federation. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005 in a Shop.org press release entitled Cyber Monday Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year”. According to Scott Silverman, the head of Shop.org, the idea was to provide online retailers with a catchy hook to match the brick-and-mortar shopping frenzy fueled by mention of Black Friday savings.

The Sopranos

Answer: The Sopranos' abrupt cut-to-black ending remains one of the most controversial series finales in TV history. Created by David Chase, The Sopranos centers on the life of Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), an Italian-American mobster who attempts to balance his family life with being a mafia boss. The series finale had millions of viewers across America genuinely convinced that they were experiencing a cable outage. Chase left audiences in a state of confusion when the screen abruptly cut to black mid-scene and held there for 11 seconds before the final credits started rolling. The infamous final scene left the fate of Tony Soprano ambiguous, dividing fans between those who thought he lived and those who thought he died.

I  will  go  along  with     POST-IT-NOTES

Answer: Like many women in the 1950s, Bette Nesmith Graham made a living as a secretary. The problem was that she wasn’t a good typist, and kept making mistakes. So she began experimenting with ways to cover up errors. She mixed ingredients such as white tempera water-based paint in her kitchen blender and painted over her mistakes with a thin paintbrush. She began marketing her typewriter correction fluid as "Mistake Out". The name was later changed to Liquid Paper. In 1979, she sold Liquid Paper to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million. Her son, Michael Nesmith, would also find fame as a member of the rock band The Monkees.
