Sometimes, but certainly not always. They could also have extra stock/overstock they're trying to move out, want to increase sales figures prior to the end of a fiscal quarter, promotion by the manufacturer or distributor, or any number of other reasons.

There is no set rule for an overarching fiscal year. That is set by each company individually, and varies between companies. Fiscal quarters are just set up as every 3 months within that company's fiscal year.

And no, Black Friday isn't related.
