Is nothing sacred anymore? Now they have Black Friday on Thanksgiving Day. What are they going to do next?

Have it on Halloween? It is too bad that people have lost the true meaning of Christmas.

Thanksgiving is meant to be with family and friends and not be so stressed out about giving expensive gifts.

The best gift you can give a loved one is by being with them. Christmas is about celebrating Jesus’ birth and how he died on the cross to save us. This Black Friday is getting out of hand.
