When is Black Friday 2022 and Cyber Monday 2022?

The date for Black Friday this year is the 25th of November, followed by Cyber Monday after, which will fall on the 28th of November. Black Friday deals generally falls after Thanksgiving day on the 25th of November.

Why is it called Black Friday and when did it start?

Back in the 1950s and 1960s, Philadelphia police used to call the day between Thanksgiving and the Army-Navy game “Black Friday,” which was the day between Thanksgiving and the Army-Navy game, which happened to be a busy shopping day in the city. As a result, the police were left working long hours to handle the crowds and the traffic on this Friday.

As the 1980s progressed, the day became one of the biggest shopping days of the year for merchants, with the term Black Friday denoting good profits as they used primarily black ink (used to show profit) and less red ink (used to show losses).

While Black Friday shopping once meant camping outside stores to grab the best deals when they first opened, the term now means the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Today, you can shop at malls or brick-and-mortar stores, as well as online shops.

What is Cyber Monday?

The early 2000s saw a shift in shoppers’ shopping patterns following Black Friday. Buyers who were unable to shop during that weekend would often shop for bargains online the following Monday, usually from their homes or offices. The day quickly became known as Cyber Monday, and by 2014 Cyber Monday had exceeded $2 billion dollars in online desktop sales, becoming the most expensive day in US history. Cyber Monday has also become a worldwide hit along with “Black Friday”.
