Thanksgiving is right around the corner. That one day where we sit around being thankful for stuff, and over eat turkey and other delicious food. I become more thankful for football and naps as the day wears on.
But then Friday we celebrate the holiday of dissatisfaction. We stand in line for hours to get a new bigger tv, or to buy our kids even more stuff. The turkey hangover turns into a coffee buzz as thankfulness takes a backseat to materialism.
We forget for a time that money can’t buy happiness, and in the process charge up a year worth of low monthly payments.
So for those who are dissatisfied with being so thankful, don’t worry. Because you can stop being thankful on Friday. I can go back to focusing on myself, and what I want, what would make me happy. Or can I?
Perhaps the answer lies more in the question of should I. Of course I can, but should I? Should I fight for the opportunity to buy another tv? Should I cut out of turkey day early since the sales start now at 8pm?
