Protect Thanksgiving

What’s going on with our national psyche that “retail therapy” has been upgraded to an essential service on Thanksgiving Day? Consider the message we’re sending to children when family time takes a back seat to the lure and seduction of enticing sales.

In our 24/7 economy, Thanksgiving is a rare day that is both faith-friendly and faith-neutral to pause and express gratitude. Support retailers that close on Thanksgiving Day! Let’s celebrate this unique holiday as a time-in to reflect and give thanks with family and friends.
