If God is for you, who can be against you. Always give Him thanks and praise

On Thursday we will celebrate Thanksgiving, one of the most look forward to holidays in America.  Already many are preparing the holiday menu.  On some tables there will be the traditional turkey, golden brown from the oven, ham, mashed potatoes, or potato salad and for those of Caribbean descent there will probably be jerked chicken, curried goat and goat water, rice and peas, carrot cake and sweet potato pudding. 

It is a day to give thanks to God for his many blessing and to get together with families and celebrate.  Many will travel thousands of miles to be with their loved ones and they will create memories. However there are some people who will not get the chance to enjoy this momentous occasion as their employers require them to be at work on Thanksgiving.  

There are 365 days in a year but giving their workers the day off to celebrate with their families is apparently too much of  a sacrifice for many businesses to make.  Kmart for example open its doors at 6 a. m. on Thanks giving day.  Wal-Mart opens all day but sales begin at 6 p. m.   Toys R Us opens at 5 p.m.  Best Buy 6 p. m.  JCPenny, Macy’s, Target, Sears and Staples all open at 8 p.m.   Thanksgiving is now being termed as Grey Thursday and if we are not careful the true meaning will be lost and sales will become the order of the day.

Maybe it is time to follow the examples of three states which ban shopping of Thanksgiving.  These states are Rhode Island, Maine and Massachusetts.   As consumers we have the power to stop the growing trend of businesses opening on Thanksgiving day by boycotting those who do.  Consumers going out to shop will force those businesses to stay closed.

A big Thumbs up to  Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, Costco, Burlington Coat Factory and Marshall’s who will all remain closed on Thanksgiving.  We respect and appreciate the decision you have all made in remaining closed.  

For each and everyone I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and may the Good Lord bless you all.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about this. Commercialism has already dimmed the true meaning of Christmas. Pay attention to the list of stores that are NOT opening today!
