Thanksgiving Means Big Business For Companies—Shorter Dinners For Families

An Op Ed Piece by Jasmine Campbell

While the origins of Thanksgiving have been disputed and in some cases a topic of historical controversy, the holiday is indeed a staple in American culture.  Turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, family, friends and good times are all key ingredients to the celebration.  On this day we celebrate all that we’re thankful for.  So why is it that we’ve allowed consumerism to derail the principles of the holiday?  Let’s take a look at Black Friday.  The Friday after Thanksgiving, people camp out in front of your Wal-Marts and Targets to get first dibs on door buster deals for Christmas gifting.  Twenty Twelve will introduce the first ever Black Thursday.  You read correctly.  Stores like Target will open up at 8 pm on Thanksgiving night—bringing in the Black Friday debauchery a day early.  We got the whole Holiday thing ass-backwards if you ask me.  It used to be on Thanksgiving, you give thanks and on Christmas, you bless the sweet baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the Three Wise Men.  But both holidays have become increasingly more commercial—to the point of disgust.  I’m a woman.  I like love a sale just a much as the next gal, but am I willing to allow a sale to pull me from spending time with my entire family? No.  Am I going to do vicious battle with all the sale-obsessed people? No.  As much as I want to, I just can’t do it anymore.  A least not on Thursday night for crying out loud!  Next thing you know, Black Thursday is gonna turn into Black Wednesday where we’re all at the supermarkets fighting for fifty cent turkeys.  Black Thursday is a game changer and this is why: So many people rely on Black Friday deals and budget their money accordingly so that they can have all their family covered (gift wise) on Christmas day.  So while they might not want to go out on Thursday, they will miss out if they don’t—throwing off their whole Christmas gifting budget.  So they’ll allow the sales to pull them from the fam although it goes against every fiber in their being.  But that even begs the question—what is Christmas all about anyway.  Ah man, its really too much to pick apart but I just wanted to give you all some food for thought.
