Expert Criticizes Black Friday Coinciding With Thanksgiving

(Undated) -- Black Friday shopping starts on Thanksgiving this year, and one psychology expert has issues with that. Dr. Frieda Birnbaum says there's too much stress involved with the two events happening on the same day. Dr. Birnbaum calls the growing trend of stores opening on Thanksgiving "horrible." She says there is not a consumer product in the world that can make a person feel as good as another person reminding them how much they are loved and appreciated.
