And by now, Cyber Monday (a thing whose reason for existing I still can't wrap my head around) has come and gone. Shopping is practically the job description of one of my family members, so we feel these rushes of consumerism in full force around here.

Cyber Monday makes perfect sense from the technical/convenience standpoint-- Use the tools of the internet to buy things and deliver them to you at your convenience (thus saving yourself time and fuel) instead of going out into traffic, fight for parking space, fight for getting in lines for items, fight for awful public bathrooms that haven't been washed, etc. The proliferation of smart phones means you can shop anywhere, anytime.

A secondary benefit is it takes a bite out of stores that try to push to open Thanksgiving when the employees might want to be home instead spending time with friends/family (assuming your country observes this holiday or isn't Canada that celebrates it a month earlier). Monday is long enough past Thanksgiving that everyone should be able to have that chance to relax (in theory) after a big turkey dinner.
