More than a decade ago, people who were disappointed with holidays dominated by consumerism started to set aside the busiest shopping day of the year as “Buy Nothing Day.”

Immediately after the family gatherings of Thanksgiving millions of Americans start their holiday shopping.  Instead we could take the day to renew our appreciation that the best things in life cannot be bought with money.  And we could avoid the crowds.

Buy Nothing Day 2006 is November 24th.  Celebrate in your own way.
