This year we saw Christmas items hitting the shelves well before Halloween. What happened to Thanksgiving? This has been out of hand for a while but it keeps getting worse. Now I hear “Black Friday” sales are creeping onto Thanksgiving Day. Is one holiday not enough for the stores? Now they have to steal another? Thanksgiving should be a day families come together and give thanks for what they have, while enjoying a good meal together. All these chasing of sales is nonsense.
My plan this year is to enjoy Thanksgiving Day with my family. The following day we will put up Christmas decorations but not before that day. We will also avoid all stores both days. You should do the same and help encourage retailers to allow their employees to also stay at home or on minimum staffing on Thanksgiving.
