CITY HOPES TO REMEDY SHOPPING WOES, MOVES THANKSGIVING TO DECEMBER!

WITH STORES OPENING EARLIER ON BLACK FRIDAY, SOME EVEN OPENING ON THANKSGIVING DAY, BRIDGE PORT IS MOVING THANKSGIVING TO DECEMBER 20TH, MAKING THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS ONE HUGE HOLIDAY CELEBRATION!

BRIDGE PORT

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. 
Frenzied shoppers shopped til they dropped last Thanksgiving 
Barney Fife (no relation to the TV character), President of the local Chamber of Commerce, applauded the decision."With stores opening earlier, with some now on Thanksgiving day itself and the fiasco it is causing, moving Thanksgiving to December 20th is the right move," he wrote on his Facebook page.

Others were quick to disagree.  Bea Hinds, 70, of Bridge Port called it a devilish plot to destroy giving thanks and building family ties.  "And to make matters worse, I already thawed out the turkey," she told OFF THE WALL NEWS, while holding a quivering hand to her face.

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!"
