Happy Black Friday

This year, I've noticed several TV commercials actually referring to today as Black Friday, as in "Check out our extended hours on Black Friday," and that seems weird to me. Sure, everyone knows what Black Friday is by now, but it's still a bit of industry jargon, and using it in your commercial seems a little too inside baseball.

Besides, Black Friday is a terrible name.  It sounds more like the name of a horror film, or a Satanic holiday.
