I know that Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated on a different date from the date that we celebrate here in the US.
I'm not sure about other Countries.....as to whether or not they acknowledge Thanksgiving at all, or when it might be.
I have not looked this up, but I'm guessing that the USA and Canada are the only two Countries to do so.
SO......this made me think about BF. Is this a United States thing....ONLY? Does Canada have a "Black Friday" shopping day?
I don't get mad.....I just sometimes say that I'm mad......and with that said, I'm mad today! Why? Because I do not like the fact that stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day this year.
Many stores are opening their doors.....right after noon. Even though I am a shopper, and I must say..... I LOVE IT,
I believe that Thanksgiving Day should be reserved for spending time with family and friends.......and for reflecting upon all of the many blessings that we receive every single day...
If the retail stores are going to continue to open their stores on TD, then I see no reason to have a Black Friday!!!
For those of us who like to shop (and I do understand that many people do not).....BF is a day that we look forward to all year.
We map out our stops......We have special T-shirts made.....
we wake up at 4:00 A.M. .........We have certain stores on our list that we must stop at before grabbing something for breakfast.
We love to get mixed up it all of the hustle and bustle....We sing Christmas songs and listen to Christmas music......We act like kids!!
We meet our guys around 6:30 for dinner at the Jalapeno' Tree.......We go back to the stores......We end our day around
And to think that the retail shops want to change all of this for us........makes me mad!! Disappointed is more like it!
Don't get me wrong.....I'm definitely not a "Habitual" shopper... This is just one of those days that I like to do my Christmas shopping with my girls by my side!! It's a family thing....0
So tell me now.......do those of you who live in Canada, or other Countries for that matter.......have such a day as
