How has Black Friday and Cyber-Monday changed the way people shop for the holidays? Do you think this is a good thing? Black friday changed the way people shop because black friday has major sales, so when we go shopping we tend to shop like crazy. Honestly , i've never heard of cyber-monday so i can't really comment on that. Yes i do think its a good thing, to my family black friday doesn't change anything , we still shop the same on Christmas it's just that the prices are more up then they are down on black friday.
