|Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York and has worked in|
the ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years.
Here in Buffalo our merchants are in a never ending battle to throw out the bet bargains for the holiday shoppers. This year we have stores and malls open on Thanksgiving, and not just the day after. It has caused quite a controversy among shoppers and store owners and poses a great debate as to what the right thing to do is.
The Malls are requiring workers to work Thanksgiving night and enticing the shoppers that they will get the best deal if they come out at that time.
Shopping has become more competitive since on line sales are increasing each year. Is it the right and moral thing to do? What happened to the celebration of Thanksgiving with family and friends giving thanks for what we have and enjoying the sentiment of the holiday. It seems to have turned into a shopping spree for many instead.
I for one do not need to buy anything that bad that I will join the crazies in this shopping frenzy. Those bargains only drop in price the closer the holiday comes anyways.
People, get your priorities straight and chow down on those turkey dinners. Consider yourself lucky if you have family and friends to share THAT holiday, for you are missing the biggest gift of all.
Everyone, it's Judith and Steve's 40 Anniversary.
Happy Anniversary! Mazol Tov! (Enclosed is Judith's Facebook post)
