There is a popular Thanksgiving meme that I have seen widely shared at about this time over the last couple of years. It says:
Because only in America do we wait in line and trample others for sale items one day after giving thanks for what we already have.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. We will spend the day celebrating with our loved ones, giving thanks for all of our many blessings.
Why go from that to the insanity of Black Friday shopping? Not only will some people line up before dawn on Friday, but some will rush out to the stores Thursday evening before they have even digested their pumpkin pie.
Relax! There are still many shopping days before Christmas! There is nothing you need so badly that you need to make yourself crazy battling crowds in a shopping mall.
Why not let the celebration of that day spill over to the next day and abandon Black Friday in exchange for Fun Friday?
Our plans for the day includes cookie baking and playing games – and, of course, eating leftover turkey. We will laugh, sing, and just enjoy being together.
How will you spend the day after Thanksgiving?
