Today is known in U.S. commercial culture as Black Friday. It’s the big Xmas sales day after Thanksgiving when all of the retailers hope to get their balance books back in the black.
But it is also Buy Nothing Day, a day dedicated to resisting crass commercialism and the zombifying dictates of Madison Avenue.
I’m just going to call it Blue Friday, after the beautiful blue sky I saw over my woods in the Ozarks.
