For some odd reason I have only heard of the Term Cyber Monday a lot this year. From doing some research apparently it was term coined up to label the first Monday after Thanksgiving in the US as it is supposed to be a huge shopping day just like Black Friday today.
It â€˜s kind of interesting reading that it was created by a conglomerate of retailers, so to speak. I often hear jokes of people saying that holidays were simply invented by retailers to give people an excuse to buy things. I guess this situation kind of makes that point semi true to a certain extent. For myself I am not usually inclined more or less to shop because of these events. The only good thing is that if it semi pressures companies to drop prices so that as a consumer I can find better deals then all the better.
