Have you heard the new Christmas carol?Tis the season to be
greedy,Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Gimme some more.Bring your Visa
down to WalMart,Spendit, spendit, spendit and spendit some more.
I'm thankful to live in a country that allows free agency. If you
aren't grateful your hateful.
Thanksgiving best holiday of the year! I refuse to put up christmas lights ,tree
or anything else thats christmas till after thanksgiving. And shopping cyber
monday don't have to deal with rude people.
Wow. A lot of people seem to be really confused about "needs" and
"wants". We're still watching the same tube TV we've had for
fourteen years. I suppose it will get worn out eventually. I might look at a
flat screen then...or just go to D.I.
@hutterite. Is Thanksgiving about capitalism or about something bigger and more
special than deals on garbage.
I'm not sure why we're all groaning about it. It's capitalism
unfettered at it's finest. You do not have to go shopping on Thursday if
you don't want.
The retail industry has ruined every holiday. As long as the industry does
business on the holidays and fills the media with sale, sale sale!, people will
flock for a good deal. This doesn't get fixed without a federal law
limiting hours of operation on holidays. I wish America's culture was
different but it is not.
Boooooo! And we wonder why America is going down the toilet.
I was very careful to pay attention to the stores that opened early on
Thanksgiving so that I make sure they get NONE of my Christmas shopping budget.
Sorry to rain on these people's parade but this intrusion on one of our
most important holidays is just awful on so many levels. Thanksgiving USED TO BE
the only day that was not focused on getting stuff - it was about family and
reflecting on what we're thankful for.What these people fail to
see is they are making millions of others work on a day they would have had with
family. All day long. We already work longer hours and on more days of the week
than ever before. Can't we just enjoy one day of the year without thinking
about shopping?This is just like Sunday shopping a few years ago -
before long there will be no boundaries whatsoever on what takes place on this
day. Christmas Day is next. Mark my words....
Oh, please, stop the insantity. Ironic that on a day to be grateful for what we
have, we feel compeled to go grab more stuff. Isn't Black Friday enough?
Why do we have to ruin Thanksgiving? If nothing else, this is a tragedy for
store employees who want to have one sane day of the year with their families.
Maybe it's time to just be honest, to stop calling the holidays
Thanksgiving and Christmas and just call the whole 30 days what they are: Greed
Talk about losing site of the true meaning of Christmas. But hey, your dignity
is a small price to pay for a good deal on a tv, right?
