    THANKSGIVING Day in the US often ends up being a last minute grocery shopping day for many Americans. Target, one of the nation's largest retailers will join others in adjusting its store hours for Thanksgiving Day 2021. 2Target released a statement in January 2021 announcing they would close for Thanksgiving Day Is Target open on Thanksgiving Day 2021? Target will be closing its doors on Thanksgiving Day this year allowing for employees to enjoy the holiday.

The major holiday is often focused on gratitude, giving thanks, and of course the delicious home cooked turkey dinners.

    Bam! Zing! Talk about a turkey of an idea! Comic-Con is getting hit on all sides for its move to host a convention this year during Thanksgiving weekend. The trade show for fans of everything from Spider-Man to Star Wars — which has not held a live convention in more than a year because of the coronavirus — announced Saturday that it will host ‘Comic-Con Special Edition’ at the San Diego Convention Center from Nov. 26 to Nov. 28, the three days following Thanksgiving. “A Thanksgiving #ComicCon?,” tweeted one comic head, @TheFirstEcho. “Am I supposed to wait in line for Hall H while eating leftover stuffing and cranberry sauce?” Comic-Con blamed its decision to the “acute impact” that lost revenues have had on the organization. During the pandemic, it has hosted virtual events that bring in far less money. “Hopefully this event will short up our financial reserves and mark a slow return to larger in-person gatherings in 2022,” said the organization’s spokesperson, David Glanzer in a statement on Saturday. Glanzer did not immediately respond to a query from The Post....

    Multiple statues of historical, often colonial, figures were torn down on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, and vandalized with red paint and graffiti, Fox News reports. A Spokane, Washington, police report says that a statue of President Abraham Lincoln was vandalized with paint, while multiple colonial statues were toppled or defaced in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Some of the graffiti written on the statues include "no more genocide" and "all colonizers are b-------." A group called the Pan-Indigenous Peoples Liberation network has claimed responsibility in a statement that also calls for a "national decolonial day of action." The activity appears to be related to the LANDBACK campaign, which is a movement of indigenous people that aims to win back control of their historical land, and whose mission statement includes "respecting Indigenous rights, preserving languages and traditions, and ensuring food sovereignty, housing, and clean air and water. Above all, it is a rallying cry for dismantling white supremacy and the harms of capitalism." Their mission statement also notes: "We must continue to decolonize our minds, communities, and sovereign nations. The decolonization of our communities and people is directly...

    Sidney Powell isn't done fighting for President Trump even though the Trump legal team distanced themselves from the attorney over the weekend. The former federal prosecutor told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Tuesday that she plans to file a lawsuit in federal court "no later" than Thanksgiving Eve. "It’s a massive document. And it’s going to have a lot of exhibits," Powell said, adding that the defendants are "going to be folks in Georgia who are responsible for supposedly making sure the elections in Georgia are done properly, and there are just countless incidents of voter fraud and election fraud writ large in Georgia." Powell did not name any targets of the lawsuit while speaking with Dobbs, but over the weekend she said the alleged corruption went all the way to Gov. Brian Kemp, claiming state officials were being paid to be part of a conspiracy with Dominion Voting Systems, which has denied being involved in a vote-switching scheme, and much more. Kemp's office did not return the Washington Examiner's request for comment. Powell also said on Tuesday...

    A New York sheriff said that he will not direct his department to enforce Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 10-guest limit for Thanksgiving dinners. “With regard to the Thanksgiving Executive Order, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office will NOT be enforcing it against our County residents,” said Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino in a Facebook post. “Frankly, I am not sure it could sustain a Constitutional challenge in Court for several reasons including your house is your castle. And as a Sheriff with a law degree I couldn't in good faith attempt to defend it Court, so I won't.” “Who and how many people you invite in to your home is your business, unlike outdoor gatherings which may receive a police response if disorderly or other violations of public nuisance laws occur,” the statement continued.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The coronavirus pandemic is transforming this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade into a television-only spectacle, New York City said on Monday, with the traditional giant character balloons pulled by vehicles rather than humans and absolutely no children allowed. Thousands of wide-eyed onlookers who typically line city streets around the traditional 2.5-mile parade route passing Macy's Herald Square store instead were advised to cheer the procession from their couches in front of their home television screen. "Under the unique challenges of these unparalleled times, we felt it was important to continue this cherished holiday tradition that has been the opening act to the holiday season for generations of families," Susan Tercero, the parade's executive producer, said in a statement. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city had worked closely with Macy's to come up with a safe and creative plan to keep the parade - a more than 90-year tradition that typically kicks off the holiday gift buying season - on schedule in the city that was once the U.S. epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. To pull...
