The History Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the Start of Christmas Shopping

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day, which always falls on the fourth Thursday in November, has been regarded as the start of the annual Christmas shopping season. Many retailers nationwide open early on Friday. However, in recent years major retailers such as Target and Kohl’s have opened as early as midnight. Many have also started opening at five or six o’clock on Thanksgiving Day.

The concept of Cyber Monday was created to help persuade consumers to shop online. Exclusive deals are offered online in order to compete with traditional retailers’ Black Friday offerings. Clothing and shoes are among the most popular items sold on Cyber Monday, while Black Friday is known for selling a lot of appliances, cutlery and kitchen gadgets. Online stores also may “leak” out their deals as a way to help generate publicity. Sales are not necessarily limited to just Monday, and may go on for an entire week.

According to The New York Times, more and more consumers are utilizing smartphone or computer apps to compare and buy Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Extensive research helps ensure that you’re actually getting a bargain. Also for many, shopping from home is a pleasant alternative to battling extensive crowds trying to get to limited quantities of the year’s hot products.
