Black Friday

Its that time of year when we flock to the nearest retail outlet at an ungodly hour in the morning in an attempt to beat out the rest of the assembled hoard for, what we assume to be, the deal of the Christmas shopping season.

Being a practicing curmudgeon, my suggestion is to spend the day observing that little know holiday of “Buy Nothing Day“.

If you must spend, consider sending something to Heifer International. They may not have any door-buster sales, but then the waiting line is not as long and you get to sleep in.
