    Angry Thanksgiving - Swept Under The Christmas Welcome Mat

    http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2012...bit-early.html

    Walmart, Sears and Toys R Us: 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving
    Target: 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving

    Kohl's, Macy's and Best Buy: Midnight

    Black Friday, the "holiday" that directly follows Thanksgiving in which many millions of people get started on their Christmas shopping, is going to arrive early for many retailers and shoppers.

    Earlier and earlier every year. I went shopping on November 1st and was already seeing places with Christmas stuff for sale. It's kind of unfair to turkey day.

    Is this what America is becoming? We're giving up a meaningful dinner with family so that we can go buy more crap we can't afford? I get that we live in a material world and everything, but this seems a little ridiculous to me.

    Just my opinion, but I love thanksgiving. Sitting down with those closest to you that you haven't seen in forever and eating a shit ton of fuckin amazing food. Stuffing yourself full and then passing out for the night.

    Now what? Eat some half-assed meal of turkey and gravy before you hit the early sales to save that dime?

    Fuck that. Not me. Count me out, I love Thanksgiving.
    Just because you read it that way doesn't mean that's what it says.

    Now what? Stay home, keep your money in your pocket instead of spending it on mostly imported Chinese crap.

    I've found if you don't give anyone presents they stop giving presents to you. Then you don't have to any shopping. Problem solved.

    That is so, so self oriented.

    Wow. Fuck me sideways. I make a thread about Thanksgiving and generate 5 posts about Christmas gifts.

    Thanksgiving is dead.
    Just because you read it that way doesn't mean that's what it says.

    You could ask Admin for your own Thanksgiving forum?
