Celebrated on December 24th
The first shopping cart was a folding chair with a basket on the seat and wheels on the legs.
On weekdays, you'll see the most activity between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. as people dash in to pick up last-minute items for dinner. On the weekends, things get started a little earlier, with traffic peaking between 11 a.m. and noon.
Contrary to popular belief, Black Friday is not the biggest shopping day of the year. Usually it’s not even in the top five. The most popular shopping day is the Saturday before Christmas.
