DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS PROPOSE MOVING THANKSGIVING DAY TO WEDNESDAY

imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Beginning next year, Thanksgiving Day will no longer be on a Thursday.  It will be on a Wednesday. That is, if Democrats can have their way.

Democratic lawmakers are proposing a new law that would reschedule one of the major U.S. holidays to better coincide with the various shopping ‘sale’ days attached to Thanksgiving week.

“Everything seems to be shifting a day earlier,” Senator Harry Reid said. “Black Friday now starts on Thursday, Small Business Shopping  Saturday now begins on Friday, and Cyber Monday now kicks off on Sunday.”

“It therefore makes sense to move Thanksgiving Day from Thursday to Wednesday,” Reid said.

For many, it would mean a 5-day holiday weekend that starts Wednesday.

If passed, the new law would also mean that there will be no stock trading on Wall Street for a full three days on Thanksgiving week, starting on Wednesday.
