Another year, another Thanksgiving! What are you all doing for the holiday? Spending time with family and friends? Enjoying delicious food? Queuing up for bargain electronics? I'm heading to family friends with my family and girlfriend, and I'm bringing along an apple crumb pie that I baked last night.
Whelp, we're back to Thanksgiving, with another tumultuous year behind us. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! What sorts of fun things are you doing today? Dinner with friends, family? Other things, or don't celebrate Thanksgiving? Are you going to participate in Black Friday madness?
Is Thanksgiving turning into a commercial holiday ... kind of like how Christmas is?
Obviously in AU we dont really celebrate the holiday though .
Yeah it seems like so in USA. Now some stores open at like 12 AM after thanksgiving and result in flash mobs and safety problems. Basically, people have to stop celebrating earlier then go to work at night.
In Canada we also have the Black Friday since the last three years , but our thanksgiving occurs one and an half month earlier. Also over here we have store hours regulations in order to allow families to have a life, so in Quebec, stores cannot open before 8 AM (except convenience stores and supermarkets) and in the rest of Canada 6 AM.
Black Friday in Canada kinda lost its meaning right when it started three years ago, because the sale actually lasts through the weekend. They might as well have called it Black Friday weekend sale.
We also have Boxing day, which is similar to American's Black Friday (in terms of popularity), and it occurs on December 26th. However stores usually open at 1 PM.
Huh, I don't know why we didn't use this topic the last few years. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you have a fun, festive, relaxing, peaceful time with yourself, your friends, or your family. And I certainly wish the same sentiments to our many members and friends outside the United States.
