Nov 28 – Thanksgiving

28 Nov

I figured I can’t top last year. Sure, I’m celebrating this year. I even bought the naming rights to a can of green beans that will go to feed the homeless (www.namesforchange.org) because I’m so thankful I’m in a position to give back. But this pilgrimage to the pilgrim land last year is what got this whole Holidaily thing started. I felt I should try to celebrate every holiday as all out as this one.

Nov 26 – Shopping Reminder Day

26 Nov

TV is filled with them now. People like me making ads to remind people like you to go spend money on things you don’t need instead of celebrating the things that matter: friends and family. But I actually would hate to work on a Black Friday ad. It’s more like Black Plague Friday. As much as I love this ad, I can’t celebrate shopping reminders like this especially when stores are opening on actual Thanksgiving Day. We should be reminding people to talk instead of shop because that 72 inch TV bargain won’t replace a night of sitting around the table trading war stories. 

In fact, this article perfectly sums up my feelings about this ridiculous Black Friday trend.
