Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, has been a growing shopping phenomenon that caps the first weekends of holiday shopping. Each year for the past several years, annual sales on Cyber Monday have increased by double digits.
Unlike Black Friday, when deals are found at local stores with early morning opening times, large crowds, and limited quantities, Cyber Monday sales are offered by online retailers, where there are no crowds or a need to leave your home or workplace.
Here are several reasons why you might want to make Cyber Monday your big shopping day this year and next.

“The First Thanksgiving” by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” – G.K. Chesterton, Author and Journalist
As you gather with family and friends on this blessed day to give thanks, we at Goedeker’s want to express our gratitude to you. What better way than a whole host of Thanksgiving blessings, prayers, and poems for this Thanksgiving day.

Stuffing (or dressing) has been a crucial part of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner for generations. But that does not mean you have to always have the same old bread stuffing this year.
Whether you are cutting carbs for an Atkins, paleo, South Beach or other similar diet, or want to try your hand at a surprising and delightful new recipe for the Thanksgiving classic, or if you are just tired of bread stuffing, you will find something you like from these ideas.
If you are looking for an alternative stuffing for your bird, here is a list of ideas and links for Thanksgiving dressings with unusual but not unheard of ingredients. Feel free to experiment; these are organized by the main ingredient to replace the bread. There are certainly more variations you can do with each alternative.

Turkey has become the iconic Thanksgiving dinner. Whether baked, roasted, broasted, rotisserie, deep fried, or even explosively deep fried, sometimes you may want to try something different than the classic giant bird.
But don’t despair that you might be ruining the feel of a classic or “traditional” thanksgiving feast. While there were many dishes served at the first Thanksgiving feast to celebrate the successful harvest, turkey may not have been the main course.
Here are six main dishes that were very likely served at the first Thanksgiving that you can serve instead of turkey this year for more variety.

Have you ever heard someone complain that their husband got them a vacuum as a gift? Despite some pretty creative (and sexist) attempts to sell appliances as gifts over the years, most appliances are not seen as a romantic or attractive gift.
However, there are certain appliances and ways to gift appliances that do make them appreciated gifts. Here are a few examples.

Black Friday, the massive shopping day that follows Thanksgiving, is usually an event full of stories of people’s greed and inhumanity towards one another. In fact, we posted some of the greatest Black Friday tragedies earlier on this blog.
But not all stories of Black Friday are bad. Some are heartwarming tales of human kindness and positive news – and we’re not talking about getting a good deal on a Christmas gift.
As a family company, tradition is a part of Goedeker’s legacy and history. As the holiday season approaches, there is more discussion about family traditions, including the matter of creating new traditions. Recently, The Art of Manliness blog posted a list of tradition ideas for families to start.
A tradition is a powerful way of building a stronger family and better relationships with everyone in your family. However when a new tradition falters, it can be distressing and disappointing, and even become a point of contention among family members. Here is a list of key components to family traditions that will last for generations.
