black friday

Friday is Black Friday, one of the biggest shopping day's of the year (it used to be #1 but not anymore), but it is also International Buy Nothing Day. Hubby and I have decided to join in and buy nothing on Friday. The lure of the sales is great, but we will spend the day together. I'll knit, hubby says he'll pressure wash the deck, and the kids (hopefully) won't learn about the ugly side of retail and the formerly religious holiday that has been hijacked by rabid consumerism.

I gotta say I love it when I find people who celebrate Buy Nothing Day. Makes me feel more connected and less like an outcast. :)

Now, does it count if you buy nothing because the thought of fighting off hoardes of crazed shoppers gives you the willies? Cause that would be me :-P

Black Friday was "killed" for me a few years ago, when I realized that almost everything I bought "on sale" that day was cheaper yet the day after that (Saturday). So I have no problem w/ buying nothing!
