    TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Is the Commercialization of Christmas Destroying Thanksgiving?

    Black Friday is just around the corner! Personally, I’m not a fan of getting up in the wee hours in the hopes of grabbing the latest and greatest items on sale–it’s way too much pressure. Plus, I love my sleep! I recognize that it’s a tradition, though, and there are some people who live for the experience.

    But did you know that Black Friday is creeping into Thursday this year? Instead of opening their doors early Friday, some stores are opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. There actually are shoppers already camping outside stores.

    I think this is so sad. Thanksgiving is a special American holiday. It’s a day when families come together to celebrate and give thanks for all the amazing blessings in their lives. It’s a day full of tradition: the turkey dinner, the football game on TV and sometimes the real game in the yard.

    Thanksgiving also is a day of service, when we remember and reach out to those in need.

    But for many retail workers, this day’s celebrations will be cut short or cancelled so that bargain hunters can get an even earlier start on their Christmas shopping.

    Are we losing touch with the important things in life? Is the commercialization of Christmas not only destroying our Thanksgiving celebrations, but also the real reason we celebrate Christmas?

    Ladies, if we don’t hold onto our family traditions, I feel they’ll slowly become lost in the hustle and bustle of commercialism. What do you think?

    Do you think Black Friday should leave Thanksgiving alone, or do you love that Christmas shopping comes earlier and earlier every year?
