Shopping this Thanksgiving?

UpWords® ShoppingThis Thanksgiving, just like the ones before it, many people will be out shopping to get the best deals on Black Friday.  Although I've never gone out that day to go shopping, I've certainly seen the deals and have gone online to see what I can get!  It would seem that with the internet and online stores like Amazon.com, the spirit of shopping has invaded our homes to a deeper level than before, diluting the actual celebrations we should experience.

Personally, I know that this is how my life often is on a daily basis.  Instead of ...
