Save the Dates

Traditionally Black Friday is the Friday right after Thanksgiving. This year it takes place on the 29th of November. While Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving. This year it is on the 2nd of December. Most of the sales occur on the weekend between both dates.

It is hard to track when the day after Thanksgiving tuned out to be a retail biggest discount sale, but it probably goes back in the last years of the 19th century. During that period, store-sponsored Thanksgiving parades were common, and at the end of each parade, a Santa Clause was showed marking the start of the holiday shopping season. However, American retailers decided to mark Black Friday right after Thanksgiving because similar to Christmas it a time for family, kinship, and holiday.

On the other hand, Cyber Monday is a relatively new shopping day. In fact, several years in a row the NRF had noticed a repeated spike in online sales and traffic on the Monday following Thanksgiving. They assumed that people were buying online from their work computers where the Internet connection was faster and stable, and they would avoid overcrowded stores and waiting in the cashier line for hours. In 2005, Ellen Davis, senior Vice President of research and strategic initiatives for the NRF, coined the phrase ‘Cyber Monday’ in a press release a few days before Thanksgiving where she provided the online sales statistics and discussed that this new trend will continue in the following years. The retails catch the terms and saw it as new opportunity to increase their revenue.
