Top 3 Reasons Why Cyber Monday Is Better Than Black Friday

Not wearing pants, safety and getting paid to shop are just some reasons why Cyber Monday tops Black Friday on our list of "shopping holidays."

By Katherine Biek | November 28, 2015

Black Friday is officially over. Hopefully you all were able to purchase everything on your long lists without breaking too much of a sweat. But there's another shopping holiday coming up that's just as good as — if not better than — Black Friday. We're obviously talking about Cyber Monday.

The first reason it's better — you don't have to get dressed up for it. 

There's no putting on a decent outfit to get in your car and drive out to the mall.

Because we all know the other shoppers are judging you if you go out on Black Friday in your pajamas. 

But on Cyber Monday it's totally acceptable to wear your pajamas. Heck, you don't even have to wear pants. 

Reason No. 2: Staying behind your computer to shop is probably safer than leaving your house for Black Friday. 

According to Progressive, there are 34 percent more car accidents on Black Friday. That's compared to the two weeks before and after Thanksgiving. 

And you can't forget about those brawling shoppers. Fights broke out at malls across the U.S. on Friday, including in Kentucky, Texas and Louisiana

And finally, Cyber Monday is the perfect excuse not to do work. 

Many of us will be working on Monday, so now instead of taking those secret breaks to check our Facebook and Twitter accounts, we can shop. All while getting paid.
