Happy Thanksgiving and Plan for "Buy Nothing Day"

Everybody:

Have a great Thanksgiving, but be sure to mark you calanders to my favorite new holiday, "Buy Nothing Day" this November 26th...

Make the busiest shopping day of the year a day of "culture jamming" and of just enjoying not buying stuff. Make it an 24 hour experiment, a fast from "consumerism" or a act of protest. But try it out.

This is an international holiday that has gone on for the last 15 years, where all you have to do is not finiancially consume stuff. Don't buy gas. Don't buy a track off iTunes. Don't buy a stick of gum. See what it feels like and what fills the space.

As it says on the above stencil, which you can download free here, "Draw Something, Sew Something, Cook Something, Sing Something, Make Somthing, Buy Nothing...November 26th!

Here are some user created posters from the Buy Nothing Day blog...
