The retailers of a 1961 era Philadelphia coined the term Black Friday in reference to the large number of pedestrians and traffic created by the "day after Thanksgiving" sales that mark the beginning of the holiday shopping season. I can only guess what they were originally thinking in choosing black to describe the throngs of humanity; but the connotation was since modified (wisely) to refer to the "in the black" profits the merchants hope to capitalize on.
