(a.k.a. my annual shellacking re. the plea to Don’t shop on Thanksgiving.)
I’ve posted this in a few years past, and the replies remain the same:
- My church/religion doesn’t recognize Thanksgiving as a holy day.
- My family and I happen to love shopping; that is how we celebrate Thanksgiving.
- The workers are really happy to have a job.
- If I didn’t shop on Thanksgiving, the stores would still be open and the workers would still be working.
- TOM, you’re being kinda Puritan, aintcha?
But what do you think? Is it different this year?
Lent-on-the-calendar has come and gone, but are we living in Lent-as-a-season-of-the-heart?
Do you think that those of us who have observed Lent are better prepared, less prepared, the same, for this most unusual of Thanksgivings?
