Yep—fast becoming a nation of idol worshippers. You watch—it wont be too far in the future when stores will be opening earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving Day. All for whoreing after slightly discounted ‘stuff’.
A Marriage Tip that I post on the Daily Readings thread was
Buy Nothing Day instead of Black Friday. I think the same goes for Thanksgiving — stay home with your family.
Stay home with your kids and play games, etc. — showing them that family life is more important than shopping.
