I've raged for years against the usurpation of my favorite holiday by the crass commercialization of Christmas. Of course it's gotten me nowhere. But I still don't understand why a bargain the day before or after Thanksgiving isn't just as good as one on Thanksgiving. There are still as many days in the year as always, still a month between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and folks have always managed to get their shopping done, retailers have always managed to sell their wares. I was delighted to hear this year that, in Denver at least, Black Friday was disappointingly slow. I'd love to think it signals the beginning of the end of the madness ... but I'm not that naive.
