Should We Just Cancel Thanksgiving?


I don’t see the point of Thanksgiving anymore really, so why don’t we just cancel it? Yes I’m serious.

What is it? Hundreds of thousands of people  now have to work on Thanksgiving because these stores are just getting more greedy and have to open on Thanksgiving, so what’s the point anymore?

I thought it was a day to give thanks and spend time with your family but how can you do that if you have to work?

All these stores are opening on Thanksgiving now. It was bad enough that they were opening on midnight on Black Friday, but at least you got the chance to enjoy Thanksgiving and didn’t have to work, but not they’re just saying the hell with it and just effectively cancelling Thanksgiving for a lot of hard working people out there. I’m sure the owners and board members and all those big wigs aren’t working on Thanksgiving but they’re making the little people work. It must be nice to be able to spend time with your family and send tell subordinates they can’t?!

What’s the point of even celebrating Thanksgiving anymore when people won’t even be home. Sure stores are opening at 5pm, but they’re having these limited supply doorbuster sales which means people will be there on Thanksgiving morning to get in line so there is no Thanksgiving for them either. So we have all these consumers not celebrating Thanksgiving and then all the employees not celebrating Thanksgiving so what’s the point again?

I guess you just have to figure out what’s a priority family or bargains. Sure there are some great deals, but I won’t be there. I’ve never once been shopping on Black Friday and don’t ever intend to, but I have to admit I have been tempted. I sure as hell would never go shopping on Thanksgiving.

I have to wonder how Black Friday and being open on Thanksgiving might affect sales for grocery stores since I’m sure people are buying less right since they’re not exactly celebrating Thanksgiving?

Whatever… who cares as long as they make their money right?

I guess next year they’ll open the day before Thanksgiving and have sales then… Call it Gray Wednesday…
