Holiday shopping on a holiday, yes or no? Discuss! I can see both sides. If I had no plans for the day, then beginning my Christmas shopping would be nice. The stores wouldn't be crazy and I could knock off a few purchases. On the other hand, if I was hosting Thanksgiving and missing out on special sales and losing out on this year's version of Hatchimals I would be negatively impacted. Impacted is the corporate word of the week... Black Friday is more intense than my delicate constitution can take, Shady Thursday I can get on board with. You with me?
