S/O: I don't get it. What is so special about Nov 22?
Since this site is blowing up with anger over people working on holidays and no one is answering my question directly...
Why is is SO freakin important to people to eat turkey with their family on November 22? Would turkey with your family on November 24th not be just as special? Are you less thankful for your family on November 25th? What about December 1st? Do you not love your family on that day? Travel is SO much cheaper on December 1st and all of the turkeys will be clearanced out so you can get one cheaper for your belated turkey dinner on Dec. 1. Why are people clinging so desperately to the fact that their world will end if they do not get turkey with Great Aunt Myrtle on Nov 22?
Work schedules for next week are likely posted by now so what is the harm in calling your family and trying to plan a family gathering for a day that you do have off? I thought Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what you do have and being with your family. Not stomping your feet because your calender insists you only should see your family on the day that a giant image of a turkey is on your calender.
