So, don't encourage this kind of behavior from merchants large and small. Let this one day be a day set aside for celebration with loved ones and friends ... not a day for rank consumerism. We have a whole bushelful of days like that all through the year.
Give your fellow men and women a break. Be countercultural on Thanksgiving. You might just find you like it.
Wishing you and yours the best for Thanksgiving ... and every day.
