Thanksgiving used to be a family holiday at home. People waited to go Christmas shopping until Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. But now that is changing. People are leaving the Thanksgiving table to shop at Macys, Toys R Us, and Walmart. These stores want early shoppers to spend a lot of money. But some stores want to honor Thanksgiving tradition. In this photo, shoppers are walking by a “Happy Thanksgiving” sign on Nordstrom. Nordstrom and Costco will not open on Thanksgiving Day. These stores say, “Our employees work hard. They need a day off with their families”.
