No, No, No! It's This Monday That's Cyber Monday… Maybe

A few weeks ago, we wrote about how the idea that the Monday after Thanksgiving is somehow the busiest online shopping day of the year known as “Cyber Monday” was actually completely made up by a bunch of online marketers hoping to boost interest in online sales. The truth was that the Monday after Thanksgiving is nothing special. Of course, now that it’s in the past and out of everyone’s minds, another company is now claiming that this coming Monday is the real busiest online shopping day of the year… unless it’s the following Monday. Or, they say, there’s a possibility that it would be the Monday after that. But, you know, one of these Mondays. Meanwhile another firm is asking what Monday has to do with anything. They insist that “Cyber Monday” is really a Tuesday. That’s right, next Tuesday might be the biggest online shopping day of the year. But, maybe not. Of course, since you don’t have to brave the crowds at the mall… do you really care?
