Goodbye Thanksgiving

In the news today I see
Christmas Sales have begun
That’s what retailers are promoting
Now that Halloween is done
No more waiting for Black Friday
Stores are open Thanksgiving Day
Cyber Monday is no more
Shoppers need more time they say
So forget about Thanksgiving
That Holiday is obsolete
Consumers need extra time to shop
Not give thanks, stay home, and eat.
