I've hesitated about posting here concerning my annual Quixotic quest to see Thanksgiving given respect. Most of you have heard it before. You know my feelings. And it hasn't really been news, so I've fought the temptation to annoy you.
Now, it has become news.
In my humble opinion, this is the year either Thanksgiving is saved as the holiday we know it or it becomes just another shopping day.
Across the country, more and more retail chains are announcing openings on Thanksgiving rather than a wait until Black Friday. Employees at those stores are being made to give up their holiday in order to work.
Do we want that to happen? More important, do we want that to happen HERE?
I won't hector you here. If you do want some action suggestions, some are at my blog.
Thanks for listening. I'm sure you'll let me know if you think I'm overreacting. And I promise this will be my last posting here on the subject.
