Buying Into Thanksgiving


I remember those Thanksgiving Days
When we feasted and gave the Lord praise.
Now a person thinks more
About sales at a store
Than on whether he eats or he prays.

  • I remember asking when a lot younger why Santa was in the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Of course, the answer is reflected in the above.

    A couple of days ago, in discussing the lack of Thanksgiving movies, Richard Roeper noted that Thanksgiving has lost its independent significance.

    But now when you get Back Friday going all psycho, that's going too far. It was at least conventional wisdom that once the idiots were gone, the better deals were on Sunday. Maybe one has to get the limited number tablet product, but Barbie will be there into December.
