Black Friday was originally a U.S. tradition, but has become bigger and bigger in Australia over the past few years. Since the 1950s, shops in the U.S. have offered big discounts on their stock the day after Thanksgiving, and people would often get ahead of all their holiday shopping on this weekend. That tradition has gone global in the past decade, and now Black Friday is a global shopping event. Cyber Monday is a recent addition to the holiday weekend, as online retailers sought to offer their own take on the Black Friday goodness. But as the lines blur between commerce and e-commerce these days, Black Friday/Cyber Monday has become one connected week of deals. Black Friday 2022 technically takes place on Friday, Nov. 25, and Cyber Monday takes place on Monday, Nov. 28.
