#OccupyChristmas – “Buy Nothing Day” Is Here!

Ladies and Gentlemen, good Americans, mark you calendars!  Occupy Idiots have declared November 25th as “Buy Nothing Day.”  You do know what this means, don’t you?  It means that we normal folk can shop freely, without the distraction, stench and threat to personal safety created by the occupiers.

Also, there is talk that they will be sending bogus Jesuses and Santas into the malls to “meditate,” so warn your kids.

UPDATE:  Now that I think about it, does anyone really believe that these people will leave the rest of us alone as we shop?

Dreading the holiday season? The frantic rush and stress? The to-do lists and sales hype? The spiritless hours trapped in malls?

This year, why not gather together your loved ones and decide to do things differently? With the simplest of plans you can create a new rhythm, purpose and meaning for the holidays. Why not take the spirit of Buy Nothing Day and morph it into Buy Nothing Christmas?

    This is what actually scares me:
    “Think of it as an adventure, as therapy – a week of pieing and pranks, of talking back at your profs and speaking truth to power. Some of us will put up posters in our schools and neighborhoods and just break our daily routines for a week. Others will chant, spark mayhem in big box stores and provoke mass cognitive dissonance. Others still will engage in the most visceral kind of civil disobedience. And on November 26 from sunrise to sunset we will abstain en masse – not only from holiday shopping, but from all the temptations of our five-planet lifestyles.”
