Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest shopping days in the United States. They take place on the Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving, respectively. Some say that the term Black Friday was first used by Philadelphia police officers in the 1960s to describe the chaos and traffic caused by shoppers and tourists who came to the city for the holiday weekend. But another explanation for the name is that it’s the day that retailers would go from making a loss to making a profit – from being ‘in the red’ to ‘in the black’.
The term Cyber Monday was coined in 2005 to describe the trend of online shopping that spiked on the Monday after Thanksgiving. For a long time, it was a more online-focused day of deals, but now Black Friday is as much as about online deals as is it is high-street chaos.
Both days offer huge discounts and promotions for consumers, who spend billions of dollars on various products and services. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become global phenomena, as online retailers around the world participate in these events.
