Black Friday Destroys American Traditions

Macy's black Friday will now begin on Thanksgiving night, Thursday, at 8 p.m.

I doubt they would do this if they thought only a handful of people would show up.

Besides the fact that it sadly means some employees have no family to join for dinner, it means many many Americans must be leaving the food-family tradition to go shopping.

How terribly sad.  Traditions are so important.  Another American family-one on one time- interpersonal relationship- activity gone down the tubes.

True, but a lot of people living in America are immigrants from other countries that don't have a Thanksgiving tradition. They'd just as soon use their day off from work at Walmart, or get holiday pay for working there. Just like frum Jews have other traditions - like a regular day of yeshiva - instead of "Thanksgiving dinner".
