What is Thanksgiving

What is Thanksgiving

Nothing but Black Friday Eve

Prelude to Christmas

Our culture sold for profit

Our history up for grabs

We’ve become hollow

Freely giving up our souls

To the next slick ad

Our materialism

What does this say about us

  1. Amen to that! I went to the store last weekend… One isle full of Halloween, the Second full of Thanksgiving, and on the 3rd, they were already setting up for Christmas! What the heck? It’s all about profit and greed unfortunately…. but here’s the thing…. amongst the displays of Holiday ‘stuff’ were lots of people filling their shopping carts full of it. Demand and Supply…. the consumer drives this madness.

    • I suppose that they do, but it just shows the lack of self-control on the part of the American public to change what they know is wrong. Sadly, truth-be-told there was a time that I fell into this trap. Fortunately I came to my senses.

    • You are right, I noticed my first Christmas commercial on Halloween night, they just keep getting earlier and earlier and we as a population buy into their greed as if they are doing us a favor. Shame on us for allowing it to happen.
