    Christmas tree this Thanksgiving pouring over pages and pages of shopping bargains the prepare to celebrate the holiest of holidays all year, Black Friday. This year lets remember the bottom line of corporations everywhere and decorate our trees in black with complements of our favorite shopping bargains.

    Let us give thanks for the Christmas bargains and remember that Thanksgiving is just a speed bump on the way to Christmas savings, and a smaller bump every year with more shopping hours to delight us as the years progress.

      I saw this scene at a Thanksgiving dinner I was invited to a couple years ago and I think there were one or two idiots planning to be out at midnight for bargains

      I was invited again this year and said no thanks, the hosts are fine and don't behave this way, but the rest of the clan does , and also spouts Faux news talking points. I decided I would be much happier at home baking stuff for a Black Friday turkey dinner and maybe getting the tree up, then maybe a little picketing Fri morning :-)
