So how did the day after Thanksgiving get the name of “Black Friday” and where did it originate? Back in the day, once the Thanksgiving holiday was over, people immediately thought about the next big holiday… Christmas! Droves of anxious shoppers would line the city streets looking for bargains and that special gift for their loved one. In accounting terms, “in the red” means that you are not making money and “in the black” meant that the tides have turned and you are turning a profit. With the infusion of new sales the day after Thanksgiving, companies turned a profit, hence “in the black”. A little known fun fact is that the origin of this phrase was from right here in Philadelphia!
While many of us still treasure bargain hunting on “Black Friday”, one of the best deals in town happens to be right here at Normandy Farm Hotel. Do you have any foodies on your gift list? Gift cards have become the #1 preferred holiday gift and a “Farm Charm Gift Card” from Normandy Farm Hotel can be redeemed in so many ways. To begin, you pay only $79.00 and receive a gift card valued at $100.00. Best of all you can redeem your gift for any and all food and beverage offered at the Farmer’s Daughter Restaurant including Sunday Brunch, lunch, dinner, and the Farmer’s Daughter Bar. You can even use the card towards an overnight stay in the hotel (based on availability).
With savings like that you should treat yourself as well!
