I’ve been thinking about the disappearance of Thanksgiving as retailers continue to rewrite the merchandising seasons to jump from “Back to School” to the simultaneously marketed holidays of Halloween/Christmas.  Other than the grocery stores and a few restaurants, Thanksgiving is hardly mentioned.   Some would argue that we consumers brought this on ourselves.  After all, every September purchase that reflects the Halloween or Christmas theme only encourages retailers to start the shopping opportunities even earlier the following year.  

Despite limited marketing efforts, Thanksgiving creates the heaviest travel traffic of the year.   Despite the moans of travel woes and family drama, we persist in loading up the car or standing in line at the airport to go “home” for this holiday.  

I’m reassured that something in the American psyche that keeps “Thanksgiving.” 

So in keeping with the reality that this week your mind may be somewhat distracted, this week’s post is going to be a simple “Thank you.”   Here’s a brief post to thank you all for making Vendormate’s progress possible throughout the past year and to wish that the blessings of life be yours in abundance in the coming year.
