Cyber Monday
Nelly Min

Reader's question:

Here you'll find the best Cyber Monday 2010 deals and sales offers on electronics and gadgets (but also other types of products).

Could you explain Cyber Monday in America?

My comments:

Cyber Monday is the online retail industry's name for the Monday immediately following Thanksgiving, during which stores and retailers offer sales online. It's a marketing term in the United States created by companies to persuade people to shop online. The term made its debut during the 2005 holiday season, on Nov 28, 2005, in a shop.org press release called "Cyber Monday." The term is also used in Canada, the UK, Portugal and Germany.

Speak of the devil

Hold a candle to

Jump the gun
