I know this may not be the most important issue in the world, but I don't think it's right that Walmart and other stores are opening for Black Friday sales at 8pm on Thanksgiving night. Can't Thanksgiving just be a day where family and friends hang out, eat a great meal, watch some football and spend quality time together?
It is also very unfair to force employees at these stores to leave their families on Thanksgiving.
We live in such a fast-paced society. Many people are working long hours and cannot spend as much time as they would like with families, especially those with kids. I'm sure that American families need more time sitting around the dinner table and less time at shopping malls.
