We all know that this Friday marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. My question this year is......do we really have to start on Thanksgiving? Do we really need to make people leave their family celebrations just to sell us the "must have" deal? Why can't we just wait until Friday, the deals will still be there at 4am just like every other year.
When I was in college, I worked at Wal-Mart and worked the store on Black Friday. I understand the desire for a great deal, and there are some great deals on Black Friday. This year so many retailers have decided to begin their shopping madness at Midnight or even before and I just think it is horrible that they can't just let employees enjoy one day with their families.
My family is going to forgo the Black Friday shopping this year. We would not be huge spenders if we went but we would never choose to go on Thanksgiving just because we believe that day is for families to be together.
I wish all my readers a very Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday Shopping!!
