It used to be that Thanksgiving was a day for families in America to give thanks and spend time together. The whole family gathering around the table and enjoying a nice meal and taking some time to reflect on the year that has not ended yet but time to give thanks for all that we have and been blessed with either way. It wasn’t until recent times that the following day turned into this corporate driven day for shopping early, but now it seems these greed driven retailers have decided to just do away with thanksgiving all together and be open that day as well. For what just to get an extra day to get your hard earn money out of your pocket! Now because of this some families will have to either celebrate Thanksgiving early and/or not at all. Do we really need to have the stores open on Thanksgiving Day; is it not enough to be open the day after? Some people work in retail because that is all that they can do and some work in retail because that is what they want to do, but do we really need to take them away from family and friends just so that “we” can get the jump on Christmas? Let’s send a message to the retailers across America and make them change, before you know it Christmas day will be open for business and then we will all have fallen further into the corporate greed.Explain why someone should support this petition
