The festive season is fast approaching, and there comes a point when you must start thinking about what gifts you’re going to purchase for your friends and family. To many, this will seem a daunting task (and an expensive one), but that doesn’t have to be the case. Before the sleigh bells start ringing, the Pop in a Box Black Friday sale arrives, bringing with it loads of clothing (T-shirts, jumpers, and hoodies), homeware, and — of course — Funko Pop! Vinyl figures.
We also have loads of products that fit with the winter theme: stockings, advent calendars, Christmas jumpers, and more. These are perfect for the holidays, whether you’re purchasing for someone else or yourself.
When Is Black Friday 2022?
In the United States, Black Friday falls in the week directly after Thanksgiving. For the rest of the world, it occurs on the fourth Friday of November, which this year falls on the 25th of November 2022.

The History of Black Friday
During the leadup to Christmas, it has become something of a tradition to mark Black Friday on the calendar. Though the event originated in the US, it is now recognised on a global scale, with most retailers (both physical and online) offering discounted prices on the day. This is especially useful for those who don’t want to spend their entire year’s earnings on gifts.
Why is it called Black Friday? We wouldn’t blame you for asking that question — it’s quite common. The name can be traced back to the early ’60s, during which police officers in Philadelphia started using ‘Black Friday’ to describe the chaos that ensued when large quantities of tourists visited the city to begin their holiday shopping. As you might expect, this made the officers’ jobs all the more difficult, forcing them to work longer hours to deal with traffic jams, accidents, shoplifting, and other issues.
Funko Pop! Black Friday Sales
If you’re a long-time collector of Pop! Vinyl figures, you’re no doubt aware of the cost that comes with building your display. Black Friday is the perfect way to reduce that price tag, with dozens of figures (both standard and limited editions) available to purchase at a massive discount. And that’s only the start of it: Pop in a Box also stocks products such as clothing, homeware, and accessories (many of which fall under the Loungefly brand).
