Not many people think about it much now. Thanksgiving is being forgotten about. When you look at your TV, you can see that business are already pumping out commercials for Christmas shopping, and have been sense Halloween.
Most people don’t even know where Thanksgiving originated. After the Pilgrims survived many brutal winters, they celebrated in the Autumn of 1621 about being thankful for what they have and out of their kindness, they celebrated the feast with the Native Americans.
An 8th grade Yearling at Garner named Joshua Wong says that “Companies are skipping Thanksgiving entirely and trying to just make more sales. He is also disappointed with the decisions by the companies of moving Black Friday to Thanksgiving Day.”
Our 8th grade history teachers Mr. Ramos, thinks that “Companies are leaving out Thanksgiving, and have been since October. He completely disagrees with Black Friday being on Thanksgiving Day because the purpose of Thanksgiving is to spend time with your family, and this would have to force people to work then spending time with their family. Lastly, doing this could change the whole working schedule.”
Shoppers should consider boycotting Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving day because, Thanksgiving is a time to spend time with your family, it’s not about working. At this rate, Thanksgiving will just be a memory in the past that might be long forgotten.
