Keeping Thanksgiving About Family, Not Bargains

As the Christmas creep seems to be getting worse, many retailers are opening on Thanksgiving evening to beat the competition to the punch and to get shoppers in their doors. What this is doing is infringing on their workers ability to celebrate the holiday as has been done for years.

I like the spirit of the person who made the above graphic. 

Retailers need to be held accountable for their actions. Keeping customers and workers at home for a few more hours won’t break the bank. There are plenty of shopping days between Black Friday and Christmas Eve. 

This says a lot about our national priorities. Getting the best deal possible as soon as possible seems sad to me. I am old fashioned when it comes to spending time with family and loved ones during the holiday’s. Lets stop this chaos.
