i think little by little we are loosing the tradition of thanksgiving the old thanksgiving that we used to spend time with family and friends, now stores are pushing the sales some even opening at 8pm on thanksgiving and forcing employees to work. in a couple of more years it will probably be call black Friday week

"Only in America will people trample over each other to buy things we can't afford or don't need the day after we give thanks for what we already have."
I guess we're fixing that paradox, now we can trample each other on Thanksgiving day instead, and skip the celebration altogether.

My wife and I were just talking about this subject. All of the retailers have ruined Black Friday by having these sales BEFORE Friday.

Yea, I agree with everyone else. Definitely ruining the tradition and becoming more about shopping than being thankful

You betcha- everyone is weary of running into the stores at 4 in the morning just to grab a few sale items. Half the time, only the first 100 people get what they want... and everything is sold out.
Stores are using Black Friday to boost their sales weeks before the actual date.It's all marketing.
