BLACK THANKSGIVING

Stores are opening a day earlier this year on THANKSGIVING!
BLACK FRIDAY is becoming unofficially BLACK THURSDAY.
Greed is destroying our families, our values, our morals.
MONEY can't buy families. MONEY can't buy the time we need to spend with our families. DON'T let someone's greed take your time away from being home on Thanksgiving!! BOYCOTT the stores on Thanksgiving!!
There is NOTHING more priceless than giving of your time with your loved ones.

Agee Vita. However, it's not just business that is "greedy"; they would not be open if it were not that people want to skip over the "thanksgiving" in order to buy stuff imported to the U. S. at the cheapest price! I find it horrendous that we don't treasure this holiday more and instead use it to go on to bastardize the holy holiday to come. We are to blame for the stores opening on Thanksgiving nite. Until we all realize that responsibility they of course will continue to do so.

Are you always this uptight? What's the difference what someone else wants to do? Not everyone has, or wants, a Norman Rockwell thanksgiving around the fire with the extended family. I definitely agree that the store fills a need in their customer by being open when they want to shop. If you don't agree with shopping thanksgiving don't go.... Funny how Americans cheapen religion and family in their daily lives, but cling to the "sanctity" of it all on one or two days a year

I am also disappointed in the creeping commercialization during our special Holidays. But, I don't blame the stores--they are barely hanging on through this man-made recession and need to turn a profit to stay in business. That isn't greed, but a vital part of our entire economic system. What bothers me is how broke I am and how crowded my house is with useless crap after 45 years of my own stupidity buying into the idea that "things" could make me and my family happy. I wish I had just 5% of the money I've spent on junk over the years to send to the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines, or to help some young person get the surgery he/she needs, or help my own Church help the homeless in my own community. It took me a long time to figure out, but it is true "money can't buy us happiness." It's what we do with our money that helps determine our fate...
