Buy Nothing Day

Nov 21, 2012 by

Everything is Fine -- Keep ShoppingYou know what I find liberating? Ignoring Black Friday (among other things). Declining to be manipulated by the massive holiday retail machine is liberating. You don’t have to participate! You can choose to reclaim your holidays. You can choose to spend Friday enjoying family and friends. You could take a long walk, read that book you haven’t had time for, watch the Lord of the Rings movies, or make piles of leaves in your yard with your kids.

Buy Nothing Day

From the Buy Nothing Day organizational website:

 This November 23rd, go cold turkey on consumption for 24 hours … see what happens … you just might have an unexpected, emancipatory epiphany!


Buy Nothing Day is legendary for instigating this type of personal transformation … as you suddenly remember what real living is all about … you sense an upsurge of radical empowerment and feel a strange magic creeping back into your life.


Join millions of us in over 60 countries on November 23/24 and see what it feels like. Then, after Buy Nothing Day, take the next step … for generations, Christmas has been hijacked by commercial forces … this year, let’s take it back.

Have a Fun Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your holiday and time with your family!

happy thanksgiving
