    Ending Black Friday Traditions?


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DaElmersBack is angry that stores are opening on Thanksgiving for Black Friday, he said. 'The earlier these stores open, the less time we spend with our family. When is there time to sleep?' He says he won’t participate in the early sales. 'This year I'm actually going to be volunteering. I am handing out free hot chili for the place I work. I'll be delivering it to people standing outside of local stores.'
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    Remember When.. Black Friday "Traditions" ended in 2012? That is how I feel this year. When these stores choose to open early, they change their customers plans and traditions in the process too.


    Many people have traditions like choosing to eat and go to bed early, so we could all get up as others were going to sleep. We'd go get a cup of coffee or make breakfast at home. Meeting at a local store or even camping out the night before, many people have traditions that will no longer be like that. These early "Black Friday" sales are really Thanksgiving Day sales gone bad.. I wish they choose not to do it..


    Keep It Black Friday NOT Thursday
