I ask because it seems it is such a big deal that RETAIL workers have to work on Thanksgiving. Why the outrage just for retail? Do they (the people who complain about Walmart, etc being open Thanksgiving) not realize that are thousands of people who already do work on Thanksgiving and have for a very long time? My side of the family all have crazy schedules, and none of them get holidays off typically. (Truck driver, railroad employee, 2 nurses) The world doesn't stop revolving for a holiday, and who says you have to observe a holiday on the actual date? We had our Thanksgiving Sunday before my sister had another chemo treatment the following day, so she could enjoy herself. I guess I think people should be more flexible and make lemonade when given lemons.
I guess this is just a pet peeve of mine. Stepping off my soapbox now. EDIT: Ignore my soapboxiness, but I'd still like to know if you have Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving or another day?
