  1. I AGREE. IT SADDENS ME WHEN I HEARD ON THE NEWS THAT SOME PEOPLE HAD BEEN CAMPED OUT IN FRONT OF A FAVORITE STORE THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING, TOTALLY MISSING THE HOLIDAY WITH THEIR FAMILIES. AND FOR WHAT? I USED TO GET UP EARLY THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING AND DO THE SHOPPING THING. BUT IT WASN’T BECAUSE I WAS LOOKING FOR SOME SPECIAL DEAL WHERE THE STORE ONLY HAD TEN OF A CERTAIN ITEM, AND UNLESS YOU WERE THERE WHEN THEY OPENED THE DOOR, YOU DIDN’T GET IT. I WENT BECAUSE IT WAS ACTUALLY FUN FOR ME, AFTER COOKING A BIG THANKSGIVING DINNER. SORT OF A REWARD IN A WAY, SINCE I ENJOY SHOPPING. BUT ALL OF THIS GREED AND COMMERCIALISM HAS RUINED IT FOR ME AND I NO LONGER PARTICIPATE.

    • I’m glad to hear that “greed and commercialism” hasn’t taken over your Thanksgiving, although I’m sorry to hear that it’s dampened your love of shopping after the turkey dinner. Wouldn’t it be nice if the stores had a little more heart for their employees and shoppers by going back to the early Friday morning sales? That way people could have their shopping and turkey, too!
