The city council announced last evening, the city of Bridge Port has voted to move the Thanksgiving holiday to December 20th. In doing so shoppers can shop til they drop without guilt all day Thursday and Friday. Local merchants are calling this a gift from the Gods, while many others are calling it a dark day for humanity.

Bob Upp, 43, of New York City expressed a different concern, "I bought my airline ticket a month ago and will be flying into Bridge Port on Wednesday night. for what? Now that they moved the holiday, my family will not be celebrating and plan to be out of town! I'll be all alone. I'm somewhat P O'd!"
He was told by his airline, to look at the bright side. He could now fly in on the 19th of December and celebrate two holidays for the price of one flight.
OFF THE WALL NEWS will monitor this change of the holiday and see what the federal government will do, if anything, as it is a federal holiday. "They haven't done anything all year long." Mayor Ben Dover said at a local pub. "I doubt they will do anything about this. Happy holidays and happy shopping to all!"
