There's been a trend the last few years that I am TOTALLY ON BOARD WITH! I remember in college having to work endless Thanksgivings and Black Fridays, and, well frankly, it sucked!! Not only were the stores I worked in open, but it was pretty much mandatory that we worked, and were therefore unable to spend time with our families for the holidays, or our families would have to rearrange EVERYTHING to get everyone together at the same time. Luckily, it looks like many retailers are shedding their Scroogeness, and actually allowing a holiday to be a damn HOLIDAY, and I say good for them!!
I mean, Is THIS really necessary?
I say we get back to the meaning of the season. Love, hope, peace, friends, and family <3
So, here's the link to the list of stores that DESERVE OUR SUPPORT for going above and beyond, and reminding us what the holidays really are for. Loving one another :)
PS... I put my money where my mouth is. I WILL NOT do ANY holiday shopping at an establishment that is open on Thanksgiving day. PERIOD.
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones,
