i hear ya. i hate and lament that, too. i don't know that it's going away, but we're definitely starting to miss the whole point. there really shouldn't be much of anything open tomorrow. we should all be at home with family and friends celebrating, relaxing, and appreciating what we do have, however little or much. i'm going to hit a few groceries tomorrow to pick up odd and ends, but only because i can, otherwise i'd have already done it.Most businesses will be open around here. People are not spending as much time with their families and don't have the time to go anywere. Is thanksgiving begininning to fade away. Broken homes, folks working, people focussed on black friday etc.
that would be the collective we. i've never once done the black friday thing. i abhor it! my fiancee and i have pajama day on friday, which is basically regardless of whether we stay in pj's all day or put regular clothes on the plan is to hang around the house and do whatever we want or nothing at all, but definitely not the retail garbage.Who's we ? . We completely stay away from the stores on Friday and as much as we can from then until January.... Never did understand the 'draw'.
i hear 'dat!My wife and I say Bah Humbug to the whole "holiday" shopping experience.
We just hate it. Not Christmas... it's the shopping frenzy rammed down our throats.
Not going near the stores from Thanksgiving Day until about January 7th.
All anyone gets from me is a gift of some cash to buy whatever they want.
you've clearly got this all worked out-- that's the exact right itinerary for thanksgiving!We don't bother with the black Fri. crap either. Staying home and relaxing. All my kids will be home for dinner. Turkey is in the oven now and wife is busy in the kitchen. She made pies yesterday(ohh boy!). Today is a day for Family, food, and being thankful for what we have. I don't go back to work until next Weds. Mon. is the first day of gun season here in Pa.
Seems like it's all about $$$ these days. I'm in my mid-40s, but as a kid, I well recall that most businesses were closed on Sundays. You sure don't see that much anymore. I think what you're seeing goes along those same lines.Most businesses will be open around here. People are not spending as much time with their families and don't have the time to go anywere.
