Sports fans have the Super Bowl. Movie fans have the Oscars.

And shopping fans have Cyber Monday.

But if you're not really into any of these big universal events, then perhaps Tuesday is your day.

Cyber Monday means an official end to a five-day-deal-bonanza for retailers worldwide. And this year, people put out a lot of green.

Adobe Analytics says customers already spent $11.6 billion just on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.

Cyber Monday is expected to set a new record, bringing in billions more. In fact, Adobe reported customers spent half a billion dollars before Cyber Monday's clock even hit 9 a.m.

And the final tally won't be in right away, because the busiest time for shopping actually comes the hour right before midnight, as people race to get the deals before they magically disappear.

And if all that spending and all that money leaves you a little mind-boggled, then here's some good tidings for your tired bank account.

Giving Tuesday is the day that follows Cyber Monday - it's set aside each year to remind people that spending money for presents is great, but spending time giving to others is priceless.

The idea is to be as simple or as elaborate as you want. Shovel a neighbor's driveway. Babysit for a friend.

Penn State Lehigh Valley is using the day to raise money to furnish a dedicated Veteran and Adult Learner lounge. They've set up a website so you can donate money, or find other ways to give back in the community.

It's the universal idea that's supposed to remind us why we have all those sayings about "the most wonderful of the year."

Because giving back this season doesn't have to cost a thing.

Just by showing people what they're worth, can make all the difference for peace on earth.
