Choose the Family gathering vs Black Friday sales.

On Thanksgiving, the family use to sit down together and have a good meal. That was before everyone was so social on Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and the other social media. I mean the holidays are supposed to be the time for the family to get together and hang out, enjoy each other.

I don’t know about your family but just the basic meal is sparking a fight. One person wants potatoes; one person wants mac and cheese, and another person would like yams. The preparation for a family happy holiday loses something when someone is standing over you telling you that you are making gravy all wrong.

Once the meal is ready to eat, you gather the family away from the television, computer, iPhone, iPads, and Laptops, to say a word of grace.  Can you believe some family member will be late just to avoid this part or the special day?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now the family gathering can also be interrupted by the Black Friday sales that start on Thanksgiving Day. I remember last years when we did stand in line waiting to go into Walmart to the big sales. I have to admit they were very clever; the sales items will not be put out until the sales time, they separated everything on sales in different location. Making you hunt all over the store. Each location had over hundred people waiting for the same item.

At Kmart, they will allow you to put sales items on layaway. Standing in the line the year before was even crazier.

This year I will take my chance at the family gathering and do some online shopping.  After all it is Thanksgiving, and the family does going through a lot of trouble.

How do you handle family conflicts, obviously we have to get a long and love one another?
