    Thanksgiving is TOTALLY overlooked. It is a time for family and friends and I think it should get some “air” time too! I know retailers want to get their products and serrvices out there for consumers to buy, but come on, step back and take some time to actually enjoy the thanksgiving holiday before jumping into Christmas.

    It is the nature of the beast. I don’t think we should be trying to change it. I can understand the purpose of making a profit, and without it we would all be out on our farms wasting our lives away doing things the hard way. If we did away with the free market, like the government has been doing for 100 years, we would be left with the socialist way of doing things. Unless you are in the elite class, which most Americans would not be, you do not want to live in that kind of society.

    Who really cares with all the other things going on in this world. With today’s Marketing, there’s nothing we can do about it anyway. This whole world is about money, money, money! So, stores need to sell, sell, sell! Trying to change it is a lost cause.

    I feel that the true meaning of Christmas is lost with the increased commercialization. Let’s get one holiday over before decorating for the next. Bah Humbug.

    As long as they call it for Christmas they could start in January….

    I don’t suppose there is much we can do to prevent the big New York advertising firms from putting on their commercials, so why care? We live in our town, and we will do what we do every-year. This year lets support the small business’ and try to keep our money within the community.
