Have a Buy Nothing Christmas

Buy Nothing Day is just one day. But this year, you can have a Buy Nothing Christmas.

I'm not sure I'd be able to get away with this one with Mom. It's already a huge stretch that I'm having Thanksgiving at my house for the first time ever. I probably don't want to throw too many cultural curve balls in one year.

Yo' Scrooge, giving mom a gift is not the same as buying mom a gift. Give her a nice drawing.

And what if you bought someone a ticket to Burning Man or Social D? What if you paid for their week's stay at a science and ecology camp? Or bought them a guide to cleaner, sustainable living? Is all that crass comercialism too? I think not.

Refusing to partake of the Wal-Mart fiasco that is PART of our culture shouldn't be a black and white, either/or proposition. It's what you give and what spirit you give in that matters most.

Yeah! You better march your ass to Wallmart and buy Mr. Crack a really nice present! Like some Kashi or Government cheese or some Victory Gin. I'll leave it up to you... but it better be nice! That's all I got to say on that subject.
