Is it crazy to skip the Thanksgiving meal for the Thanksgiving sale?

Would you skip thanksgiving dinner to get a deal on a flat screen? Are you willing to camp out for a sale? What would motivate you to set up a tent and wait for days to acquire? Is this just crazy? share your thoughts.

Do you really need to start Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving Day?

Thanksgiving Day has been designated as the day to give thanks for all of our many blessings. Generally, most of us will have a huge meal and probably eat more than we should. At my house, after the meal we play board games, watch football games, watch family videos, Skype out of town relatives, take naps, eat more, go to sleep, and get up early for Black Friday sales. This is the plan I have followed for years, but now stores have decided that we want to shop on Thanksgiving Day and they will be open to accommodate “our” desire. Well, it’s not my desire and I know most of the people working Thanksgiving Day really would love to be huddled up at home with a turkey leg and some pumpkin pie. Is this a response to the cries of the customers or have retailers made a decision to open and they have shifted the blame to the customer? A petition has been started asking Target to reconsider their decision. One of the signees offered the following analysis: In a petition titled “Target: Take the high road and save Thanksgiving”, and posted to change.org, a woman by the name of C Renee writes to the president and CEO of Target Corp.: I’m not complaining about being a minimum wage worker. Target, as a company, does some good and maintains a commitment to charity. “Thanksgiving, though, is one of the three days retail workers get off a year, a day most spend with family. The issue is not black Friday, though it’s not exactly this country’s shining moment. Every year the opening time gets pushed up more and more. Midnight last year was pushing it. How can you expect workers to spend time with family and then stay up all night? It’s inhumane and inconsiderate. You are most likely tucked away in bed while workers are in the stores pushing back a rabid crowd of shoppers trying to get an iPod. A 9 p.m. opening disgusts me and symbolizes everything that is wrong with this country. Give Thanksgiving back to families. The world won’t end if people have wait 7 more hours to buy useless junk that will be outdated in a year anyway.” What do you think is this fair to the workers? Will you be shopping on Thanksgiving?

Do You Really want to shop on Thanksgiving Day?

Thanksgiving is an American holiday. It is a day that most people enjoy family and feasting. I enjoy cooking the meal and simply having fellowship with my loved ones. I also like getting up early the next day and looking for all the bargains, but some stores have decided to open their doors on Thanksgiving Day. Sears and Kmart will be open, but is this fair? Shouldn’t their workers be able to enjoy the entire day with their families? Before anyone says well what about the hospital workers, the police and the firefighters? That is so completely different. They are essential workers. we need them to take care of the sick and ensure the safety of the community, but do we really need Sears to be open selling sweaters? ToysRUs opens at 10PM Thanksgiving night at least their workers get the day to enjoy the holiday. Target will not be open and that’s a good thing. I love to shop but not on Thanksgiving Day to me it is something really wrong with this. Tell me what you think.
