'Tis the Season for Buy Nothing Day

Attention weary shoppers, in case you missed the announcement amidst the blaring of popstar-re-made Xmas carols, TODAY is Buy Nothing Day.

Join your fellow citizens as a non-consumer for the day and enjoy the finer things in life... friends, family, a meal at home and a warm old sweater.

Ideas for non-mall activities (should anyone actually be stumped): Start on the holiday cards, watch a movie at home with friends, clean up that apartment in case the parents drop in for the holidays or join Optative Theatre Laboratories in their BND celebrations as they turn their creative demonstrating attention to the not-so-socially-conscious American Apparel.
