Hello everyone, today we will introduce the phrase “in the black”. This means basically to not be losing money. The day after Thanksgiving Day in the US is called Black Friday, it’s one of the busiest shopping days of the year and it’s called Black Friday because it’s the start of the most profitable season for shop owners.
It’s quite interesting that there is a very similar expression in Japanese too, so it’s easy to remember.
in the black
to be making money, not owing any money; solvent.
"The new CEO moved the company in the black."
