7 Names For 7 Days Around Thanksgiving (& 2 Oxymorons)

I don’t know who started naming the days around Thanksgiving Day.  However, this new tradition doesn’t seem complete.  Friday, Saturday, and Monday have names, but Sunday has been left out.  Also, it seems to me like a week’s worth of days should be named (just to make it an even 7).

So here are the names of the 7 days around Thanksgiving:

*  Thanksgiving Eve Wednesday

*  Thanksgiving Thursday

Black Friday

*  Small Business Saturday

*  Reason-For-The-Season Sunday

*  Cyber Monday

*  Giving Tuesday

2 Oxymorons–Did you notice that the introduction to this blog post contains, not one, but two oxymorons?  Yep.

1) new tradition

2) an even 7
