|A women gets trampled in a "black friday" shopping spree.|
What are we becoming, all in the name of profit?
I prefer to send a message of sustainability and reason by participating in Buy Nothing Day. Instead of spending the day in a florescent lighted, over-crowded mall, I spend it making memories with my family: baking cookies or making crafts with my son, playing in forts, and playing games with loved ones.
The winter holiday season is about gratitude and family* for most people, so the idea of Black Friday runs counter to what this season is supposed to be about. Instead, I encourage you to Buy Nothing.
*As well as the religious reasons. In my case, the turning of the Wheel of the Year.
