We already know the meaning of Christmas has been bastardized by corporate interests. This is going too far by encroaching on other holidays in the name of the almighty dollar. The Thanksgiving Turkey has had ENOUGH and is exacting revenge the best way he knows how- by taking the blade to jolly old St Nick for his pound of flesh. The corporations are next at as the Turkey sets mass consumerism aflame!

I TOTALLY AGREE! I just got a job at their factory that packs Internet orders..I was appalled that the only holiday they had off was Thanksgiving; Forth of July; Easter..I have no desire to work full time for such a company..I have a bachelors degree; but due to the economy, need the extra money for Xmas..That's why they have such a turn over; the pay is poor and they don't value their employees!9144
