NYT black friday

Did anyone see the article on the front page of the New York Times today about how retailers are driving customers to shop ON Thanksgiving?

Enough is enough. Thanksgiving is a day to be with family and friends in a relaxed way. To enjoy one another’s company with ease and relaxation. It’s a time to bask in gratitude and express appreciation for all the things we have in our lives.

Do we really need to be lured away from the people we care about so we can sit in front of a computer and shop for the people we care about?

This insanity has got to stop.
