Some may need to shop on Thanksgiving Print

To the editor:

I find it interesting that you are requesting people not to shop on Thanksgiving evening. Perhaps some of these people are working on “Black Friday”  like me and are unable to shop on Friday. If they can get better value for their money by shopping early, that’s okay.

Further more, you are advocating watching football and those players are working and not spending time with their family you don’t seem to have an issue with that.

Many families get together, but they spend most of the time glued to the TV drinking beer, and the main Thanksgiving meal takes second place to football.

Who are we to judge what is the best time for people to do their shopping? By the way I have never gone shopping on Black Friday or on St. Stephen’s Day.

Happy Thanksgiving.
