What does BFCM Stand for?

When did BFCM Start?
After Cyber Monday was introduced later in 2005, marketers have created the marketing term BFCM to simplify the way they refer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in business and in their marketing efforts.
At some point in history—exactly when is up for debate—shopping became as synonymous with American Thanksgiving as turkey and football. The day after Thanksgiving has been known, for as long as most of us can remember, as Black Friday. It’s a day of door crashers, deep discounts, and lineups around the block.
In the past decade, Cyber Monday joined the ranks to bring online stores into the fold.
