  1. I appreciate the shout out to the delivery workers. They should have safe working conditions during this time, and when we have recovered. Thanks.

  2. The concept of “star wars day” becoming an actual national holiday is a part (albeit relatively small) of the reason all living Americans are doomed to live out their lives in isolation, fear, hatred, and misery, accomplishing nothing, then to burn in hell for all eternity.
    If it was in the public domain like it should be by this point, maybe I could keep my mouth shut but as it stands, you’ve somehow allowed your government to (among many far worse atrocities that you’ve allowed yourselves to forbid even acknowledging) enshrine this zombie corporate swill and I’m morally obliged to object to this idolatry.
    And why yes, I do live in a perfect country off 2.374×10^927 kilometers in the fourth dimension where we do things right all the time. You should be grateful that I’m even bothering to dispense these little nuggets of wisdom.

    1. It’s really not much different from other holidays. Mother’s Day was heavily commercialized within a decade of its establishment despite the best efforts of its founder. and Thanksgiving was actually moved a week earlier by FDR in an effort to encourage more retail sales in the run up to Christmas (it didn’t work and they switched back a couple of years later).

      Of course, now we have a plethora of “Days” most of which are essentially excuses for retailers to sell more stuff. There’s also Black Friday and Cyber Monday, of course.

      Last year I discovered that Black Friday is now a thing in the UK, even though Thanksgiving never has been. It was introduced by the supermarket chain Asda, which is owned by Walmart, so no surprise there, just a few years ago, and has recently been adopted by more and more retailers in an effort to boost sales. Traditionally, all the major sales in the UK take place after Christmas and around New Year.
