Thanksgiving Before Christmas
Please forgive my tardiness for this post, but it could be applied for future holiday seasons. I have come up with a proposal that will make things more sane in future Thanksgiving weekends. But it will require action (or more accurately, inaction) on your part. It will also have to do some publicity so that everybody will know we mean business. Below are some of my demands – if you have any you wish to add, please feel free to add them in the comments section.
- No Christmas / Holiday ads until after the Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Christmas / Holiday season shall be kicked off when Santa Claus ends the parade and enters Macy’s (and not before.)
- No Black Friday sales until 6:00AM the Friday after Thanksgiving. This is not just for the shoppers, but for store employees who want to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families.
- I know that turkeys are a part of the Thanksgiving tradition, but could Fox Sports have someone else besides Joe Buck and Troy Aikman brodcast the Thanksgiving games? Those are not the turkeys Americans want to see.
I plan on boycotting any company who runs Christmas / Holiday ads before noon on Thanksgiving. I also plan on boycotting any store that has their Black Friday sale before 6:00AM on Friday morning for the entire holiday season. Although I will not boycott games broadcast with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, I will watch the game with the volume off. Advertisers will have a hard time getting me to buy their stuff if I can’t hear the commercials.
If this is something you are interested in, please let me know and I will start a formal petition to give to stores and companies who run Christmas ads.
