The entire concept of shopping on Thanksgiving Day is abhorrent to me. I don't shop on Black Friday.... can't stand the crowds.

I don't shop on Thanksgiving day. The day after I'll look online to see if there are any deals on amazon and that's about it. I stay away from all stores on that day. It's not worth getting tackled over saving a few dollars.

I choose not to shop on either, I like to sleep the day after Thanksgiving, but they are making a statement which can only cost them money...people love to shop on Friday. My family has whole group who leave that night and love it, it's fun and it's the start to their holiday. If people don't want to work during the holidays, then don't work in retail. All silly to me
