In a world where we have so little family time, Thanksgiving Day offers us a chance to spend some quality time with our families while giving thanks for our blessings. Capitalizing on this day to promote revenue is unethical and unfair. Thanksgiving Day is a Holiday and should remain so! No employee should have to decide between being with their families vs. working because they do not want to risk losing their jobs. This holiday was created by our forefathers to give thanks. It is an insult to our history to use Thanksgiving to make profit and wrong to pull people away from their families. I will personally boycott any store that opens Thanksgiving Day. This is wrong and it should not happen! Join me in keeping "Thanksgiving Day a Holiday" !!!

      This is one time of year when the lure of a good sale should not matter more than quality time with your loved ones! Especially if that sale means the store at which you shop is making a profit off their employees who would much rather be home with their own families!

      Thanksgiving is a family holiday. Shopping can wait another 12 hours. Let's keep this family tradition strong. Boycott stores who do not agree.

      Greed and money are slowly undermining the values on which this country was founded. More love and less gifts!

      Thanksgiving is for giving thanks for what you have not shopping for more.

      The Thanksgiving holiday is to be with your familiy, to give thanks about what you have, not what you can shop for. If you blur the dates, you will turn a holiday into just another day!
