No Thanksgiving shopping in Massachusetts

Thanks to some old laws called "blue laws", there will be no Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving in Massachusetts!

The laws state that retailers can not be open and can not force people to work those days.

Sounds great! - Thanksgiving Retail Banned in MA

Pledge to not shop on Thanksgiving!

This pledge is really making the rounds this year for Thanksgiving, hopefully it makes a difference!

Why don't you take the pledge today too?

Not sure of the origin, but it looks like it came from this facebook group:

They're already on our birds of a feather group, so hopefully they keep up the fight!
