It’s the day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday. It’s the official kickoff of the Christmas shopping season. Retailers lusting after customer’s dollars have large sales on big ticket items. They do this to lure customers into their store and not a competitor’s store.
Retailers also open earlier and earlier every year. It’s gotten to be that Black Friday doesn’t even begin on Friday anymore. It begins many places on Thanksgiving itself and continues through the night.
This places a huge burden on the people working at these retail establishments. Not only on them but their family. They’re not able to celebrate Thanksgiving like a typical American.
Thanksgiving use to be the one holiday every year that all Americans celebrated. Not anymore. There are children who don’t know what it’s like to get together with family on Thanksgiving. It takes all day to prepare the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Because Mom and Dad have to go to work and sell $3 blu-ray movies and $25 microwave ovens, a traditional Thanksgiving meal is out of the question.
Black Friday is anti-family. It’s also Unamerican.
Donald Trump ran on a platform of making America great again. Perhaps you’ve seen the hats. One way he can start making America great again is by mandating that all retail establishments close on Thanksgiving and not open again until 12 noon the following day.
Consumers will still be able to buy cheap TVs. They just won’t ruin the Thanksgiving holiday of their fellow Americans to do it.
