Thanksgiving Shopping And The Black Friday Backlash
Thanksgiving traditions used to be all about turkey and potatoes on Thursday, with Black Friday shopping early the next morning. As stores begin Black Friday sales earlier and earlier, the shopping mayhem has started to intersect with Thanksgiving itself. This year, a number of business have forgone marketing huge sales in order to promote the fact that they're closed, and giving employees the day off.
