Holiday $pirit

Stores are gearing up for the winter holiday [shopping] season.

Not one to celebrate the holidays, I find the retail craze this time of year to be bewildering. More puzzling, and quite obscene, are the people who are attempting to force stores to remain closed until it is convenient (for whom?) because Thanksgiving is about "turkey and football."

It is certainly not about spending the holiday with their families. Where is the decry on working New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day?

I will never understand why some people feel entitled to shove their ideals down everyone's throats by attempting to take away others' freedom to choose.
