What is Cyber ​​Monday?

Cyber ​​Monday is the online answer to Black Friday. Web retailers found out that many Americans made online Christmas purchases on the first working day after Black Friday. This was done to escape the crowds in the physical stores. With this trend, this new buying day was launched. The Monday after Black Friday is now known as the day on which online retailers tempt consumers with strong online discount campaigns. The term Cyber ​​Monday has only been around for 10 years, but has already grown - certainly in America - into one of the most important shopping days in the year. The turnover realized on this Monday by retailers is even higher in recent years than during Black Friday.

How did Black Friday arise?

The tradition of Black Friday itself is directly related to Thanksgiving. The American (and Canadian) holiday that is all about family. This tradition itself has arisen from the Christian thanksgiving day, in which thanks are given for good harvest and other good things. The term Black Friday is either a reference to the heavy traffic on this day, or to the suggestion that only on this day retailers would write black figures for the current financial year.

Various theories exist about the emergence of Black Friday. The week before Thanksgiving is originally a week where Americans and Canadians hold various parades. From the 19th century, large department stores responded to this by actively sponsoring these parades and launching advertising campaigns. Central to these parades were beautiful deals that were valid during the holiday season. The first day after this week was and is the day after Thanksgiving which is now called Black Friday. In 24 of the 50 American states this black Friday is even an official holiday. A second theory about the emergence of Black Friday is that retailers write "black numbers" for the first time in the year. In the past, the habit of many retailers was to write down their losses in red numbers and their profits in black numbers. Due to the high turnover that most stores run during Black Friday, this day makes big profits and the black pen can finally be removed. This is also a festive day for retailers.

Black Friday and his scenes

Since the offers are very sharp, there are often long queues waiting for the doors on this black Friday. Some people in America choose to put their car in the vicinity of the shop in question a week in advance to ensure that they can easily tow their new additions to the car. On the day itself it is no longer possible to find a parking space near the various shops. It is even questionable whether you can come with a car near shops and supermarkets, because the traffic is completely fixed on this day. People try to be the first at the stores because you can only claim the discounts on this day. So you are unlucky when the products are sold out. People who like to think a little longer about their purchases are therefore forced to make a decision immediately. In America, this can even lead to extreme situations, where bargain hunters are fisted with each other to secure the latest articles.

This month we have put together three systems to get through the dark winter months. If you want to wait your thirteenth month and your budget is limited, you can use the budget game PC for relatively little money to put together a system on which you can play fine. If a resolution of 1080p is not enough, you can switch to the high-end game system, with which you can play on a higher resolution and with more detail. You will then pay a lot more, because we have set the budget at fifteen hundred euros. We walk the golden mean with the basic gaming system, for which we have budgeted an eight hundred euro budget.
