In recent years it seems that crazy deals and endless savings have overshadowed the Thanksgiving holiday. Instead of being thankful for what we already have, the night is spent pushing and shoving to get more, more, more. I can't remember a Thanksgiving where TV ads weren't centered around what time these stores will open and how each year they open earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving Day. This year, Target will be opening their doors at 6pm and remain open through Black Friday. JC Penny will be opening at a record 3pm and remain open through Black Friday. Other stores such as Radioshack will be taking a different approach by opening at 8am on Thanksgiving and closing at 1pm, reopening Black Friday at 8am. While these stores may assume that some time at home is better than no time, what happened to the days when Thanksgiving was a national holiday that allowed all retail personnel to be at home with their families?
