Thankfully some stores have come out now to say that they will not be open for shopping, so their employees can spend the day at home with their families. has a good running list of stores that will be CLOSED on Thanskgiving Day.

If you're going out Friday, support the stores that support a day of thanks before shopping!

Don't shortchange Thanksgiving

Over at the Pensacola News Journal ( writer Troy Moon has a great post about respecting Thanksgiving and fighting the Christmas creep.

Moon: Don't shortchange Thanksgiving

What we really need to be concerned about is the War on Thanksgiving, being waged by Christmas.

Black Friday is bad enough. But last year, the Christmas holiday season even swallowed Thanksgiving, to me, the best holiday of them all. A holiday built around family, friends, food and feasting. A day to count your blessings and enjoy the company of those you love most. But then again, some of us love the appliance aisle at the box store most of all.

Great to have another voice working to help keep the Thanksgiving holiday alive!
