The Credo of Thanksgiving: Buy More Posted on December 3, 2013 by McPhedran 4 This just in: America’s great holiday is a sham.While the advertising world spins Thanksgiving as a holiday of generosity and love, it has devolved into something else. Wednesday: Go home. Thursday: Eat too much and then eat more. Friday: Get up incredibly early and engage in contact shopping. Saturday: Look at your things. Sunday: Go home with your new things. Monday: Buy more things on-line. Tuesday: Give loose change to someone with nothing. Or not.
