QUES­TION OF THE DAY: WILL THANKS­GIV­ING SUC­CUMB?

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

“The first thing we can thank God for this Thanks­giv­ing is that we Amer­i­cans still have Thanks­giv­ing. This hol­i­day, so bound up with our his­tory and our tra­di­tions, is in dan­ger. Most depart­ment stores have long since put up their Christ­mas — cor­rec­tion, hol­i­day — dec­o­ra­tions and filled the air with ‘Yule­tide’ car­ols,” de­clares Bob Mor­ri­son, a se­nior fel­low with the Fam­ily Re­search Coun­cil.

“With more and more na­tional re­tail chains open­ing for busi­ness on Thanks­giv­ing, we have to ask: Will Thanks­giv­ing Day give way to ‘Black Thurs­day’ in years to come? Will it be no more than the kick­off for the sea­son of year-end bar­gain-hunt­ing? Will an un­re­lent­ing ma­te­ri­al­ism drive out any time for home and hearth?”
