    Lynnie, I totally agree with you that stores should not be open on Thanksgiving. To me the only stores that should be open are pharmacies with a pharmacist working. For a long time I would boycott K-Mart because they were the first retail store to be open on Thanksgiving. It was to beat the rush of Black Friday. Makes me crazy. They would say that not everyone is Christian so people want something or somewhere to go. But Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July are 2 American Holidays totally unrelated to religion. (There are others I would include but will stop at those 2.)

    My DH & DD both LOVE Christmas - so our tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving and is up until at least New Year's Day, And there is a music channel called "Sounds of the Season" which starts Christmas music on November 1st and yes it is on at our house from 11/1 to when it stops some time in January. At first I was kind of crazy but now look at it as additional thoughts of the reason for the season.

    MY Dh is Jewish and Haunnaka was the day after Thanksgiving last year.. we celebrate everything with a white tree and Aqua ornaments. you wouldn't believe all the pretty things I have for the tree in aqua. Unbelievable. Even little 6 pointed stars.
    If people need something to do on Thanksgiving and have to spend money, stay home and do it off of tv. Give these family's a break too so everyone can be around the table for the turkey.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
