    absolutely - It boggles the mind how we spend a day being thankful - allegedly, and then people literally the very next day (now the same day) trample each other for more junk. Many would benefit from an eye opening experience like a soup kitchen.

    I agree employees should make their own choices, however most employees have no choice in anything regarding their work. They are paid to do as they are told. Many employees want holidays off and are lucky to get time and a half.

    You are right. And companies use the excuse that other retailers are doing it. Not one of them can be an example because they are greedy. Customers willing to spend their time in lines and fighting over deals, don't value or use their time wisely.

    I have been told that roughly 20% - 25% of the holiday shopping is done on black Friday. Even if this is true, why is it necessary to constantly move the bar earlier and earlier? Why isn't there more resistance?

    I agree with you. If people stay home on Thanksgiving stores will lose money. Then next year they won't do the same.

    Just imagine, the day after Christmas we'll be seeing Valentine's Day stuff in stores, the day after Valentine's it'll be St. Patrick's day stuff. People allow companies to shove "stuff" down their throats.
