2. What shopping day does CM stand for?

Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday, which some people shorten as "CM," is the Monday after Thanksgiving when online retailers offer discounts on many items, causing it to become the biggest online shopping day of the year. It is an extension of the shopping sales featured on Black Friday and the following weekend that allows shoppers to participate even when returning to work.

You will likely see the CM acronym online (e.g., on social media, messages, forums, and articles) and in texts (similar to the BF acronym for Black Friday). For example, people might post about CM deals in a forum or the comments section of a Cyber Monday article. Or, your friend may ask, "u get anything on cm?"

Origin of CM

The name "Cyber Monday" dates back to 2005 when Ellen Davis of the National Retail Federation coined it to describe the significant shopping day for the e-commerce community. It has since grown in usage as e-commerce has thrived, and users began shortening it to "CM" in the 2010s to save time and space.
