What's it all about, anyway?

Today we are only working til noon here in the newsroom. I had to write a story about a cultural phenomenon that grates on my nerves like rolling through broken glass naked: Black Friday.

I mean seriously...a holiday celebrating buying lots of stuff for an already too commercialized holiday??? People getting up before the sun and biting and clawing and elbowing their way through mega-chain stores to greedily snatch up bazillions of dollars of STUFF to give as gifts to an already STUFF-saturated society in the name of a holiday called CHRISTMAS - which is SUPPOSED to celebrate the birth of Jesus who once told us that STUFF isn't what He's all about.

Ok...that was my soapbox.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
