Businesses open on holidays are needed by some

I have been seeing a lot lately urging people to not patronize businesses that stay open on Thanksgiving. I think it is a great idea. Unfortunately, this is not an option in some fields. I work in an Adult Foster Care home. My sister works in a similar facility. Closing for any holiday is not an option. Our family ends up celebrating our holidays on different days, according to my sister’s and my work schedule. I am very lucky this year in that I had the actual holiday off. It doesn’t happen very often. There are many other places out there that also must stay open on holidays Tendercare, the hospital, our fire and police forces to name a few. If you know anybody that works in this type of job, please take a moment to let them know they are appreciated. Trust me, it means a lot.
