Quote of the Day – Black Friday’s Increasing Encroachment on Thanksgiving

“I want to express my concern about the increasing encroachment of Black Friday on Thanksgiving Day itself. Stores are opening earlier and earlier on Thursday, denying employees the opportunity for one unencumbered day of respite. The sad effect of this gross piece of consumerism is to say to us all: `you don’t have enough’ — on a day when we are called to be thankful for what we do have. Can’t the sale be resisted, and the shopping spree put off at least until dawn on Friday? The stores only do this if consumers support it.”

– Chip Stokes, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey
