"The final Saturday before Christmas is typically the
busiest shopping day of the year, retailers say. 

day, however, doesn't have a catchy nickname like Black Friday, the day after

we could call it Panic Saturday," said Ellen Tolley, of the National
Retail Federation. "

I see a fair amount of current news coverage saying that the term originated in Great Britain recently.
