Black Eye Friday is known for being one of the busiest nights of the year for pubs, clubs and bars with many workplaces breaking up for their Christmas night out.
Some people do tend to get a bit too into the festive spirit, while others just see it as an excuse to start Christmas off in style with their friends or colleagues.
When is Black Eye Friday this year?
This year the day falls on Friday December 18.
What exactly is Black Eye Friday?
It gets its unfortunate name from the fact that after a few too many festive tipples a few people turn nasty and squabbles and fisticuffs ensue.
In other places its known as Mad Friday and Fighting Friday.
However, for those that get into trouble, there are plenty more who just revel in the opportunity to forget about work and dance the night away to Christmas songs.
Do places get really busy?
Yes definitely... Expect to wait longer for your drink as a lot of people will go out straight from work or lunchtime on Black Eye Friday.
And if you're planning on booking a table, booth or VIP area for you and your friends or colleagues, make sure you get in quick.
