Cyber Monday


Date: When is Cyber Monday Celebrated ?

This holiday is always held on November 29

Cyber Monday in the U.S. is always held on the Monday after Thanksgiving. What began as a small marketing promotion quickly grew into a many billion dollar event. Black Friday is geared more towards the brick and mortar retailers. Cyber Monday originally began as an aid smaller business, through increased sales on their online Estores. As Cyber Monday grew, retail giants and Amazon.com gained an increasingly larger share of the online holiday sales. From its creation in 2004, Cyber Monday has experienced an annual double digit increase in sales.


The lines are blurring between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Black Friday promotions have swelled into an event that begins as early as late October and can last a week or so after Thanksgiving. Nowadays, the deals are offered both in brick and mortar stores, as well as online. Likewise, Cyber Monday deals are now offered in the days before and the days after the actual day. And, the deals are  usually valid both online and in stores. While Black Friday continues to be the biggest shopping day of the year, Cyber Monday has become a huge day for holiday sales, too. Increasingly faster internet speeds, growing public acceptance toward purchasing online, and the impact of COVID-19 are driving an even larger growth spike in online sales. Cyber Monday sales in 2020 were $10.7B. This trend is only expected to continue.


Cyber Monday is now an international term. It has grown into an international event. Most countries now have Cyber Monday embedded on their November calendars, despite not celebrating our Thanksgiving Day. For example, Thanksgiving Day in Canada is in October. But, they celebrate Cyber Monday on the day after U.S. Thanksgiving, just like us. Some countries hold Cyber Monday around this time period, but on a different Monday.

Origin and History of Cyber Monday:

The term "Cyber Monday" was coined in 2004 by Ellen Davis of the National Retail Foundation and Scott Silverman of Shop.org. The first Cyber Monday was held on November 28, 2005.

An earlier effort to promote online sales preceded Cyber Monday. In 2003 Tony Valado, who worked for 1800flowers.com, created "White Wednesday" on the day before Thanksgiving. It never caught on, and quickly gave way to Cyber Monday.
