These 2 holidays originated from the US catering to their Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping holidays.
Black Friday (27th Nov) – This is the sale on the day after Thanksgiving, where most people are on holiday and in a Christmas shopping mood. It’s called Black Friday because usually store sales go through the roof and bring their finances from red to black (profitable).
Cyber Monday (30th Nov) – This event started in 2005 to encourage new internet users (at the time) to buy stuff online. Why Monday? As it turns out, people tend to shop online while they’re at work.
