Do you like Christmas coming before Thanksgiving?
For the past few years, Halloween has become a week long event, and Thanksgiving has been circumvented by the early rising of Christmas.
Soon after the Thanksgiving meal, the Christmas lights and decorations arise out of the ether.
Black Friday is one of the conspirators of Thanksgiving only being a fleeting moment between Halloween and Christmas.
Should we just forget about Thanksgiving?
Do you feel manipulated by the people that worship the mighty dollar?
Yes, Christmas is becoming far too much.
Black Friday used to be something that just happened naturally. Many people had off on that Friday after Thanksgiving, and some chose it to shop. But the sales got more and more ridiculous and the stores opened earlier and earlier.
Now, many of them open on Thanksgiving day, which is obscene. I mean, forcing employees to come in at 5am on Black Friday (or fire them) is already an affront to common decency, but making them work at 2pm on Thanksgiving - a Federal Holiday - is an insult to everything that holiday stands for, and is often dangerous given the injuries and melees at many stories.
I published a hub recently about how unfair these Black Friday store protocols are to employees and labor.
