Black Friday first appeared in the 1960s. This commercial operation from the United States then spread to Europe and the rest of the world.
In the United States, it refers to the day after Thanksgiving and traditionally marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.

Ukeepers is an association that aims to protect bees in Belgium.
