As soon as the Thanksgiving meal has been cleared from the table, holiday shoppers flock en masse to the retail sales that follow on Black Friday. In recent years, the holiday shopping frenzy has expanded to include the Monday after Thanksgiving, also known as Cyber Monday, and it has become a booming sales day for online retailers. This year, we challenge you to make your Cyber Monday green by pledging to gift responsibly and becoming a part of The Nature Conservancy’s Green Gift Monday . The Conservancy created Green Gift Monday to raise awareness for green gifting options and provide ideas – donating to a charity, purchasing eco-friendly gifts or making a homemade gift – for everyone on your gift list.

FAULTY CAUSE: ( post hoc ergo propter hoc ) mistakes correlation or association for causation, by assuming that because one thing follows another it was caused by the other. example: A black cat crossed Babbs' path yesterday and, sure enough, she was involved in an automobile accident later that same afternoon. example: The introduction of sex education courses at the high school level has resulted in increased promiscuity among teens.
