(Pocket-lint) - Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, but retailers aren't done holding sales to get you spending money during the holidays. There's actually a little-known shopping event in December, called Green Monday, which is slowly picking up steam in the US. 

What is Green Monday and when is it?

  • Green Monday this year is held on 14 December 2020

You can thank eBay for Green Monday. In 2007, it invented the event. Green Monday usually takes place on the second Monday of December and is pitched as the "best sales day" of the month. We're not sure if that's true, given many Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are now weeks-long sales that extend in December. Truthfully, it's just another excuse for retailers to discount items across all categories, and we can't complain about that.
